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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!?
