Photo Comedian: Mixing Comedy and Photography since 1870
When I was a kid, I had a lot of aspirations. I wanted to be a basketball player, but then I stopped growing after about eighth grade. I wanted to be a news photographer, but then newspapers died. I wanted to be a comedy writer, but then I realized I couldn’t write no good.

But what I do do (yup, do do) is take great photos. And I love to make people laugh. So I figured why not mix the two: photography and comedy. And so Photo Comedian was conceived.

On January 15, 2012, 8 pound, 6 ounce baby Photo Comedian was born.

Marvin Halelamien, a registered Photo Comedian based in Los Angeles, is available for photo shoots and welcomes ideas and comments.

If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!
I spotted the Ghostbuster Ecto-1 in Santa Monica. There must be a lot of shi shi ghosts out there.

Nothing cleans and rejuvenates my hair like good old placenta.
I came across Placenta Shampoo at a Walmart. It’s usually made of sheep placenta and popular in some Spanish-speaking countries.
It is supposed to make your hair shinier according to the manufacturer.

Heinz, an old garden gnome homie, just moved to Hollywood to become an actor

So I did his headshots. Do any of you actors out there have any advice for him? He’s afraid of being typecast. It seems to happen a lot with little people: Gary Coleman, Verne Troyer, Elijah Wood…

I think he’s a great talent, but he needs to work on his versatility. He has the stoic look down though.

You say potato, I say putato. 
Did you know that September is National Potato Month? Did you know that September is also National Rice Month? Neither did I. It’s kind of ridiculous how many official food holidays there are.
That makes this the perfect photo to celebrate both.
Puto is a Filipino steamed rice cake often eaten as dessert or breakfast. It is also a derogatory term in Spanish for gay men or prostitutes, but I assure you these puto are not prostitutes. This photo is what happens when you buy too much puto and have too much time.
Enjoy and share because sharing is nice, and puto is rice.

Yolo Street in Los Angeles County claims the title as the Most Dangerous Street in America mainly because of foolhardy teens living by the mantra YOLO (You Only Live Once). 
YOLO was made famous by rap artist Drake who uses it regularly during performances. It has since been used by people often in a sarcastic or humorous manner on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media networks. 
I wonder if #YOLO will be on Drake’s tombstone.

Jesus Takes Me on Angel’s Flight

It was during a funk concert at California Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles that I saw Him.

Apparently Jesus likes funk. 

We talked a few minutes. Then He asked if I’ve ever been on Angel’s Flight.

I said no, and He was taken aback.

“Well you have to go, my treat,” He said. 

I shrugged my shoulders and said, “Alright,” although He didn’t really wait for an answer. I mean how can you resist a freebie from Jesus.

So Jesus spotted me 50 cents.

As we walked onto the trolley, everybody’s eyes were glued to Him. It was a tight squeeze for Jesus because He’s a towering fellow and it was a small entrance. The whole time I was playing “What if God Was One of Us” in my head.

At the bottom of the hill, Jesus asked me to take a picture; an iPhone miraculously appeared from His robe. Jesus stood in the middle of the walkway with His hands gently extended out as if welcoming someone into Heaven.

Some stared. Others took photos. Most looked confused. He liked the photos I took and played around with them on Instagram. I knew Jesus was a hipster.

Overall, He seemed like a genunely nice fellow, although a little taller than expected. I’m not sure why He dresses as Jesus but He has a popular tumblr I Saw Jesus In LA.

I got Jesus’ phone number and He agreed to having His portrait taken sometime. I’m trying to think of what I should do for His portrait.

Any suggestions?

Peter Pan defies both gravity and aging, but Puto Pan defies logic. Puto Pan is a world-renowned pastry chef. Many believe that what makes it so delicious is that he puts a piece of himself in every creation.

I saw the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, which is coming out today; I was a little disappointed.

It is graphic, I’ll give ‘em that.

Travelocity Garden Gnome Voyage Begins

My garden gnome is on its way. His voyage should take about 4 business days, so at this rate he should arrive before July 4. Hopefully he likes fireworks.

Metapod used Harden.
Metapod is a Pokemon character often made fun of because its main ability is Harden, which basically just serves as protection against attacks. It eventually evolves into a Butterfree at level 10.
James Harden is known for his scoring off the bench and decision making. He was recently awarded the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year. But he is known mostly for his beard.
He also was elbowed by Metta World Peace, aka Ron Artest, earlier in the season.

I’m going to start answering my phone like Lionel Richie “Hello… is it me you’re looking for?”

Lionel Richie’s “Hello” has a creepy music video in which he plays a music teacher who falls for a blind student. He stalks her through locker halls 1:42, by the lunch table 2:17, inside a dance studio 2:30, and on the phone 3:40.

OKC power forward Nick Collison is either related to Jim Halpert or works in an office by day. And by “work” I mean he puts office supplies in JELL-O.
