Inside the closed world of professional comedy

Client

Steve Best

Brief

Create a short video to explain Steve’s unique blend of comedy and photography.

Approach

I have been helping Steve Best’s develop his commercial appeal for several years now. Steve has already self-published several photography books, but is now taking his photography into his act. For this short promo I created the name f.stop.funny and hired talented young filmmaker Billy Boyd Cape to celebrate Steve’s truly unique proposition.

Outcomes

The f.stop.funny project is now published as Joker Face, a new book featuring pictures of David Baddiel, John Bishop, Jo Brand, Jimmy Carr, Julian Clary, Alan Davies, Sean Lock, Lee Mack, Sarah Millican, Al Murray, Alexei Sayle, Jack Whitehall and hundreds more. Steve Best’s new show will debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2017. Whatever else happens, it’s going to be a laugh.
