72 Hours with Marc Maron, Matt Braunger and Brendon Walsh at the Vancouver Comedy Festival: A photo essay by Leigh Righton

“Marc Maron, Brendon Walsh and Matt Braunger all performed at the Festival, and I had the opportunity to follow and photograph them over the course of three days, on and off stage. Throughout this series, I had to embrace the unpredictable – lighting was often terrible, moments were fleeting and my subjects were on the move. My goal was to provide a rare and intimate glimpse into their lives as they navigated their hectic festival schedules during the evenings, and endured long hours of downtime during the day.”

Leigh Righton writes about spending the weekend with three comedians during the Vancouver Comedy Festival. Read all about it and see about 100 of Righton’s photos from the fest featured by my friends over at Serial Optimist.
