article imageNew book Comic Genius photographs comedians in hilarious poses

By David Silverberg     Nov 28, 2013 in Entertainment
A new book of photography asked our favourite entertainers to show off their comedic stripes, showing us the truly hilarious sides of funny celebs from Steve Martin to Conan O'Brian to Tina Fey to John Cleese.
Comic Genius, a long-time project by celebrity photographer Matt Hoyle, features 130 photos of comedians from around the world, framed in wacky poses.
The book's website reads: "Rather than a simple portrait, Matt and the comic icons collaborated to create small humorous moments frozen by his lens — from zany and deadpan, to laugh-out-loud and contemplative."
For example, talk show host O'Brien holds an eerily similar-looking crying baby in his arms. 30 Rock's Tracy Morgan had his torso body-painted into a tux, Ed Helms dressed in 1920s beach wear, Billy Crystal's breast pocket is leaking pen ink, Eugene Levy is watching a tiny gardener cut his eyebrows, and Nick Offerman is mowing down on a piece of raw meat.
It is important to mention that Matt Hoyle, will donate 100 percent of his net proceeds to support the Save the Children Foundation.
A full list of participants can be found here.
