Graham Clark of MaxFun's Stop Podcasting Yourself has just released his online-only stand-up comedy special. Recorded at Vancouver's Waldorf Hotel last month, Graham's is the first in a series of local stand-up specials. Oh, also it's hilarious.

Our own Graham Clark of Stop Podcasting Yourself is also an accomplished artist who creates charming paintings using his beard as a brush. The subject matter is lively, fun and diverse ranging from a portrait of Don Rickles to two robots playing leapfrog. He has painted and sold more then 50 pieces and donates all of the proceeds to charity.
That's all terrific, but, let's best honest: you've lost countless hours of sleep wondering how he does it, right? Now, finally, you can watch his beard in action!
Video bonus: Graham discusses his painterly technique with an attractive blonde lady wearing a v-neck garbage bag.
On Thursday, September 22nd, the Little Mountain Gallery in Vancouver will host the opening reception for an exhibit of beard paintings created by our own Graham Clark of Stop Podcasting Yourself. What is a beard painting? Well, as the name suggests, it's a work created by the application of paint to canvass using facial hair. Although Graham has been creating paintings this way for some time, it's his first show exhibiting this methodology and the money from any painting sold will go to a charity of the purchaser's choice.
After the opening, the exhibit will run until September 27th. You can find all of the details, including the time and location, here.
