Photographer Matt Hoyle is no stranger to celebrities. He often takes the shots that others wish they were able to get; however, in this series he was able to extract what makes actors hilarious.

He has taken portraits of famous faces such as Andy Samberg, Tina Fey, Steve Martin and Billy Crystal. These aren’t your ordinary pictures, though. Hoyle has put the actors in a series of surrealist situations, which ultimately makes the pictures humorous. As an example, Samberg has a raccoon hand instead of his own, and Fey is having a tea party with dolls.

Even though these comedians are in strange situations, this series still has a humanizing effect on the subjects. Photographer Matt Hoyle has been able to strip down their celebrity status, and presents what looks like an honest depiction of them as people.
