• Richard Pryor, Steven Wright, Aziz Ansari, more part of art exhibit

    It’s time for comedy and traditional art fans to unite!

    Gallery1988’s latest group show, the comedy-centric “Is This Thing On?” opens Friday in Los Angeles. Here’s the deal: 100 artists have created pieces portraying some of the most recognizable and notorious comedians– both iconic and contemporary– from Richard Pryor to Carrot Top. Though the gallery’s been releasing some sneak peeks at Funny or Die for the past few weeks, the full list of artists and subjects was released yesterday for the public’s perusal.

    Though most of the pieces depict single subjects, some feature some unexpected groups and pairs. Steve Martin and Larry David? Ricky Gervais and Steven Wright? Brian Posehn and Tina Fey? Just amazing.

    Of course you want a sample. Check out this sweet depiction of Human Giant (aka Aziz Ansari, Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel).
