• Tina Fey, Conan O’Brien, more comedians featured in Comic Genius portrait book

    CONAN_BABYMove over, National Geographic: The Image Collection! It’s time for a new coffee table book to reign supreme on our Ikea Klubbo. Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People, a series of more than 130 portraits of comedians from celebrity photographer Matt Hoyle, is being released on Oct. 15th and will help support Save the Children.

    The book follows the Aug. 21 release of Hoyle’s short sketches — which you can view below — in celebration of the relaunched and revamped Funny or Die. The book includes an introduction from Mel Brooks and portraits of icons and up and comers, including Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Carl Reiner, Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris, John Oliver, Lily Tomlin, Ricky Gervais, Steve Carrell and Eugene Mirman– to name just a few. For more info about the book, check out comicgeniusbook.com or visit matthoyle.com.

Right now, she's probably tweeting as someone else or waiting for new podcasts to download. Possibly drinking coffee and wondering whether or not she should do laundry this weekend.
