'Is This Thing On? 2' by Kiersten Essenpreis pays tribute to Mitch Hedberg, who is one of the greatest and most unique comedians of all time. Mitch was famous for his absurd observations, clever wordplay and quick delivery.

Essenpreis thought the best way to honor Hedberg was not with a portrait of him, but rather a series of wood edging engraved with his jokes. Each joke is accompanied by a little picture that expresses the joke in an image format. Mitch's famous line, "Bigfoot is blurry. That's the problem. It's not the photographers fault," is complemented by a picture of Sasquatch sneaking away.

Is This Thing On? 2 by Kiersten Essenpreis reminds one of Mitch Hedberg's fantastic mind, which was a true gift to comedy.
