Hilarious Portraits of Comedy Legends From Matt Hoyle’s ‘Comic Genius’

Celebrity photographer Matt Hoyle’s wonderful new book Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People (out today from Chronicle Books) gathers over 130 of comedy’s biggest legends for portraits that are funny, clever, and downright gorgeous. Of his desire to create the project, Hoyle told Flavorwire, “I love comedy and decided to do the book to make a sort of photo album of all the times I’ve laughed in my life. So I naively made a wishlist and we spent the last year and a half begging, bugging and shooting as many of those names that said yes.” Some of our favorites from the book are collected after the jump.
