Here's one of the many incarnations of Charlton's humor comic. It started while the MAD comic was still extant in a comic called EH! which I posted a few weeks ago (Sorry, not the one with the cover intimating the phrase “built like a brick shithouse”). Then it continued for a couple issues as something called FROM HERE TO INSANITY before transforming into a black and white magazine. This one was done by Simon and Kirby even though they never did another comic for Charlton. This leads me to believe that since they seldom had A artists (Ditko being the exception), a lot of what they published was acquired from defunct companies. This could be the only reason this comic didn't have ads. Simon and Kirby had their own publishing company, so they were probably trying to launch a humor title before going under.
