Product Description

This star-studded tribute to the kings and queens of comedy draws together such legendary names as Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, and many more.

Granted extraordinary access, photographer Matt Hoyle has captured his subjects in portraits that are works of art in themselves by turns zany and deadpan, laugh-out-loud and contemplative.

Accompanying them are first-person reflections from each of the comedians on life and laughter that always cut straight to the heart of comedy: it s funny because it s true. Page after side-splitting page in Comic Genius: Portraits Of Funny People offers prose as engaging as each portrait is memorable. Here, in one handsome package, is the gift of laughter itself.
