The Art of Comedy

The Comedy Underground and Urban Craft Uprising present: The Art of Comedy Thursday April 2, 2009 6-9 PM The Comedy Underground 109 S. Washington St. (in Occidental Park) Seattle WA 98104 The Comedy Underground and Urban Craft Uprising joined forces last month to bring you the first ever Art of Comedy show during the First Thursday Art Walk. The Art of Comedy features artwork that is either humorous in nature, or made by stand up comedians. Last month, our hilarious featured artists were joined by the funniest indie crafters this side of Tukwila. This month we’re back with featured artist, Kelly Lyles, who is sure to make you giggle with her pun based animal paintings. The indie crafters are back as well – and one of them has embroidered some not so nice things on pillows especially for you. Look out. The exhibit will be followed at 9 PM by an evening of stand-up comedy, with headliner SEAN KENT ("Last Comic Standing"). KELLY LYLES - Biography This series features whimsical paintings of animals with 'all-American' household products (i.e., SPAM-STER, MICE-A-RONI, BENSON & HEDGEHOGS, STAR-DUCKS coffee, etc). In these, there are subliminal messages regarding "mass-media, marketing and consumerism.” Kelly’s studio, home & art cars have been featured in innumerable television shows and magazine/newspaper articles including Artcars by Harrod Blank, Weird Washington, Travel Channel, Discovery, HGTV, Canada’s Weird Wheels, NorthWest Afternoon, Evening Magazine, Public Radio, Woman’s World and the NY Times. http://www.comedyunderground.com http://urbancraftuprising.com/ http://www.kellyspot.com/
