The Yes Men are Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, two guys who couldn’t hold down a job until they became representatives of Exxon, Halliburton, Dow Chemical, and the U.S. federal government. As the Yes Men, they use humor, truth, and lunacy to bring media attention to the crimes of their unwilling employers.

Armed with nothing but quick wits and thrift store suits, the Yes Men impersonate big-time corporate criminals to draw attention to their crimes against humanity and the environment. Their outrageous satirical interventions at business events, on the internet, on television, and in the streets form the basis of two award-winning feature documentaries, The Yes Men and The Yes Men Fix the World. Their latest feature documentary, The Yes Men Are Revolting, adds to their hit list some of the biggest climate criminals. Their work has been shown in the Whitney Biennial, among other venues, and has received numerous awards. Bichlbaum and Bonnano are the founders of the Yes Lab and the Action Switchboard, an online platform for generating real-life direct actions in the service of social movements. Sponsored in part by Evil Twin Booking Agency.
