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.

k.d. lang is a pop and country singer. She is known for her country rock with a hint of punk style.
K.D. or Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder is one of the premiere NBA Superstars and is currently competing for his first Championship.
He is known for his clutch shooting, lanky physique, and ridiculously long wingspan. He stands 6’9” but his wingspan is 7’5”. He is a freak. A super freak.

Fred Astaire greatly influenced dance through American cinema. One famous dance routine was Puttin’ on the Ritz. Puto on the other hand, are not really known for dance but like to occasionally sit atop Ritz crackers and wear top hats. It makes them feel superior.
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.

Open my eyes, I see my wife. Close my eyes, I see my son. Damn I’m Sleepy!
Awake features an LA detective who survives a car accident and wakes up in a world where nothing is certain.
In one world his son died. In the other his wife died. So whenever he closes his eyes in one world he enters the other. It was a really interesting concept with lots of story possibilities and interpretations. My interpretation was this dude must have been really sleepy.
It’s a shame it ended so soon. Hopefully now he’ll be able to get some sleep.

Phillip Phillips vs. Philippines
As if having a finalist named Phillip Phillips wasn’t enough, I mean who names their kid that?
I’m watching American Idol tonight since my Mom called yesterday urging me to vote 10 times online, 10 times on the phone, and to tell all my friends to do the same. So along with thousands of other Filipinos I casted my vote for Jessica Sanchez.
Good luck Jessica!! And may the best Phillipino win!?

Putobellos are fungi and fun guys. They usually hide underground beneath mushrooms, and are very rare to spot. Many mistake them for truffles, which are another rare culinary treat.

I saw this new fire extinguisher that read WARNING DO NOT PUNCH. It must be in response to the New York Knicks’ Amare Stoudemire and his recent hand injury.
He punched a fire extinguisher out of frustration after a loss against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the first round of the NBA playoffs. Stoudemire missed the next game because of a cut on his left hand.

Caine’s Arcade on KTLA

Photo Comedian visited the world’s only cardboard arcade Sunday morning. 9-year-old Caine Monroy built an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store and the video went viral a few weeks ago.

So far it has raised almost $200,000 for Caine’s Arcade Foundation, which will help find, foster, and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in young kids. 

I purchased the Fun Pass ($2 for 500 arcade plays, the best deal in LA). I played the crane machine and won a musical cow that sounds like a dying electric shaver. It is kind of ingenious how he uses simple tools like string, hooks, and cardboard to make arcade games.

KTLA interviewed Caine live and I saw my feet in the right corner of the screen at 1:13.

Soon after I left, Jack Black and his kids dropped by and dominated the crane machine game. I should have stayed longer. Well, I still have 498 turns left on my Fun Pass, so maybe I’ll see a celebrity next time.

Everyone knows that Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Donatello of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are references to great visual artists of the Renaissance. But most people don’t realize that many of the bad guys are musical references. Bebop and Rocksteady are both musical genres. And Shredder is a fast playing lead guitarist.
So it’s almost like TMNT’s underlying message is traditional visual artists are good and music is evil.
And if that didn’t blow your mind, Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince was the voice of Shredder http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qztWgjlAPy0&feature=related
