Gallery: Witty Portraits of Our Favorite Comedians

A David Cross-as-Tobias Fünke figurine. A pyramid constructed in honor of Roseanne. A spooky, Cyclops Brian Posehn. A shrine to Pee-wee Herman that would fit right in at a ’50s diner. No, these aren’t images from our pop culture-obsessed dreams — they’re real-life works of art featured in Gallery 1988: Melrose‘s new show. Is This Thing On?, which runs through January 29th, compiles the comedy-inspired work of 100 artists. You can check out most of the artwork here, but we’ve picked out our ten favorite portraits, of ten comedians we love, after the jump.
