Recently, a postcard was shared online featuring a serious-looking family with a request for their neighbors: “PLEASE DON’T TALK TO US.” The postcard, titled “NEW FAMILY ON ST JOHNS PL,” explained that the Bansons, the new family on the block, are in a religion where they prefer not to engage in conversation with their neighbors. The back of the postcard featured pictures and information about the family members, including their names, ages, and interests. However, it turns out that this postcard is actually an art piece created by Alan Wagner, a comedian who describes himself as someone who makes comedy, videos, and things. The postcard was part of his August 2023 surprise for his Patreon supporters.
Although the postcard seemed amusing and many people expressed a desire to be friends with the Bansons, it was later revealed that the whole thing was a creative project by Alan Wagner. Known for his unique and offbeat comedy style, Wagner’s work has a similar vibe to that of Tim Robinson. Wagner’s Patreon offers various benefits to supporters, including early access to his posts, exclusive content, and behind-the-scenes material. Additionally, he donates 10% of his monthly profits to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, as mentioned in his Patreon video.
If you’re interested in exploring more of Wagner’s work, you can find him on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. His Patreon offers different tiers of membership, starting at $3.00, with perks such as receiving a Wagner print of your choice and getting exclusive access to his content. Overall, the “Don’t Talk To Us Family” postcard turned out to be a clever and humorous art piece by Alan Wagner, showcasing his unique comedic style.
