The Joke of Painting is a showcase for some of Austin's best comedians, but wait--there's a twist! These peeps are not only joke-slingers, but they paint too. Maybe not well… well some of them do, some of them might do Rembrandt-level shit, bro. Bro, Rembrandt, bro.
Each comic will be doing their own step-by-step demonstration on how to paint a piece of art of their choosing, with an extra dose of laughs, their jokes!!! Comedy IS art, baby. You think you can draw too? Always painted along with Bob Ross on The Joy of Painting back in the day?? Well, guess what??? You'll be provided with all the necessary utensils to follow along with the demonstration and create your own Master Stroke.
Just in case you're not on board yet, check out this spitfire lineup we've got and the masterpieces each of them has created.
