Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People Book Launch Event Benefitting Save the Children Foundation

Stars of stage and screen were out in force at the launch of Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People
Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Michael Richards (Kirstie), Bianca Lawson (Teen Wolf) and the legendary Dick Van Dyke (The Dick Van Dyke Show) were all on the red carpet on November 18 at the William Turner Gallery at the Bergamot Arts Station in Santa Monica, CA to celebrate celebrity photographer Matt Hoyle’s book featuring more than 130 portraits of the biggest names in comedy.
Man behind the lens Hoyle shot the inspiring book in a project which took a year and a half. The picture perfect result is the world’s funniest actors and comedians including Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Eddie Murphy and Billy Crystal striking silly and thought-provoking poses. During the event it was Hoyle’s turn to be snapped with many of his famous subjects.  Proceeds from the sale of the book and autographed prints were bid on and sold in an online auction hosted by Gavel & Grand, in aid of Save the Children Foundation (both are currently available online to the general public) .
