Given as a group project, my goal was to illustrate the ups and downs of a stand-up comedian and entertainer. I took heavy influence from favorite late night talk show hosts like, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, and David Letterman. In addition I wanted to incorporate classic slapstick spin on this project. My good friend, Steven Nolan was perfect for the role of the comedian and I didn’t think he would mind getting a pie in the face.
After spending a couple of hours hunting for props at Goodwill, I thought I couldn’t go wrong with a simple pie tin and can of whipped cream. Thank you to Steven Nolan for taking a pie in the face for my portfolio. Special thank you to my instructor, Erik Skaar, my assistants, Rachael Conley and Erika Scott, and Mac Holt.
