Overview

Erich Beasley likes to laugh, and he likes to laugh with the comedians that make him laugh. Comics’ Comics is the result of Beasley’s pursuit to meet his favorite stand-up comedians and hair-brained actors and have them draw an off-the-cuff cartoon in his journal. The illustrations run the gamut of the comedy spectrum, from base and slightly offensive to drop-dead funny and downright strange. Some of these comedians seem to be practiced illustrators, while others seem barely literate. Along with every illustration, Beasley has included a photograph of these comedians in the their natural habitats—backstage at clubs, usually late at night—as well as brief anecdotes about approaching these people with his strange but sincere request: Will you draw me something funny?
 
With original illustrations from the likes of Jeff Garlin, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Dick, Robert Smigel, Molly Shannon, Eugene Mirman, Jim Breuer, Max Brooks, Rob Cantrell, Julia Sweeney, Monty Python's Terry Jones and many, many more, this book is sure to appeal to fans of comedy and celebrity.

    Greatest Book You Will Ever OWN!

    Seriously, its got every great comedian working today, and the crazy things they draw. Great coffee table book, especially if you are like me and keep your coffee table in the bathroom. Buy it now before the author, Erich Beasley, gets super famous and you can't even get a copy on ebay for a million billion dollars.

    Awesome drawings by some of today's hottest comics

    This book is full of almost every hip alternative comedian working today.

    Any fan of off-beat comedy will love this book.

    David Cross, Paul F. Tompkins, David Wain, and many more of the greatest voices in comedy from the past two decades come together in one book.

    This is sure to end up at the top of the coffee table book pile.
