My history with standup comedy is no mystery, but I've never really incorporated it into my artwork before. When a friend broughtThe Sketchbook Project to my attention, it seemed like a great place for the two worlds to meet.
This new piece, "Never Forget How Famous I Am", is a collection of real stories from venues I've performed comedy in over the last 2 years. The major thing I've learned in that time is how inorganic comedy actually is. In an effort to remove that 'showbiz' allure from the piece, I took a new media approach to documenting the spaces and used the most unbiased lens I could think of: Google Maps.
So I hope you enjoy this new work online, and if you live in one of the cities where the tour stops, I hope you can see it in person!
