Seth Olenick's ongoing project 'Funny Business' has gotten him invitations into the home's of Hollywood's most hilarious.

We know these comedians, and we know them well. They cheer us up when we're angry, make us laugh when we're sad. They are familiar to us, and we tend to regard them like old friends -- fondly, affectionately, intimately -- rather than celebrities. Olenick's playful domestic portraits just enhance that familiar feeling, bringing us one step closer to our favorite funny people.

Olenick photographs everyone from seasoned veterans to up-and-comers. The brilliance behind these images, and their subjects, is that they are able to be funny without words, motion, context. Somehow, each comedian is whimsical and amusing in a single frame.
