I was happy to hear today that Brooklyn-based photographer (and the man behind Shits N Giggles) Seth Olenick reached his Kickstarter goal of $30K to publish his book Funny Business. What started as a side project six years ago has turned into hundreds of pictures of the most influential comedians from the past 20 years. He’s photographed everyone from Judd Apatow to Jane Lynch.
Funny man John Mulaney even wrote the intro (which means it’s already going to be amazing). I’m bummed that I just found out about this project because Olenick was giving away some pretty sweet rewards to those who donated. Dinner at Benihana with one of my favorite comedians? Yes, please. Oh well, guess I’ll have to catch him when he hits the road to promote the book. For now, learn more about Funny Business here:
*Note to self: Ask Paul Rudd if he owns an actual compass and/or GPS. Otherwise, I have a feeling he ends up at Whole Foods a lot.
