After a year and a half of shooting, from LA to London it’s done. I’m proud to say my book, Comic Genius is soon going to printers AND available for preorder from Amazon now, and I can’t be happier. Steve Martin on the cover, Mel Brooks giving the intro, and not just your typical celebrity portrait book. Full of concepts that tell a little story about each person, often collaborating on the concepts with the subjects themselves.
Over 130 Portraits of the biggest legends in comedy. The largest book of it’s kind ever. Look at this who’s who:
