Comedians are known for saying funny things - but what happens when you give them a pen and ask them to draw? Erich Beasley likes to laugh, and he likes to laugh with the comedians that make him laugh.
Comics' Comics is the result of Beasleys quest to meet his favourite stand-up comedians and hair-brained actors and have them draw an off the cuff cartoon in his journal. The illustrations run the gamut of the comedy spectrum, from base and slightly offensive to drop-dead funny and downright strange.
Some of the comedians seem to be practiced illustrators, while others seem barely able to hold a pencil. Along with every illustration, Beasley has included a photograph of the comedians in the their natural habitats backstage at clubs, usually late at night as well as brief anecdotes about approaching them with his strange but sincere request: Will you draw me something funny?
With original illustrations from the likes of Jeff Garlin, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Dick, Robert Smigel, Molly Shannon, Eugene Mirman, Jim Breuer, Max Brooks, Rob Cantrell, Julia Sweeney, Monty Pythons Terry Jones, and many, many more, this book is sure to appeal to fans of comedy and celebrity alike.
