October 15th: Matt Hoyle releases Comic Genius


Fresh from the lens of Slidelucker Matt Hoyle, a new book featuring 130 portraits of everyone, from Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks (who wrote the intro) Jonathan Winters (his last shoot before his recent passing) to Jim Carey, Mike Myers, Zach Galifianakis, Steve Martin and many more.

From the Amazon page:

“Granted extraordinary access, Hoyle has captured his subjects in portraits that are works of art in themselves—by turns zany and deadpan, laugh-out-loud and contemplative. Accompanying them are first-person reflections from each of the comedians on life and laughter that always cut straight to the heart of comedy: it’s funny because it’s true. Page after sidesplitting page inComic Genius offers prose as engaging as each portrait is memorable. Here, in one handsome package, is the gift of laughter itself.”

The book will be released on October 15th but is available for pre-order now.  In the meantime, you can get a sampling of the portrait collection at comicgeniusbook.com, including gallery of sweet animated gifs.

Matt was last seen here at SLIDELUCK New York X, who knows where he will pop up next.
