The Grossmallerman Show: Guy Richards Smit and Jibz Cameran
NYC artist and art-world satirist, Guy Richards Smit, is screening his 5-episode sitcom web series, THE GROSSMALERMAN SHOW at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, November 11th. The series is directed by Joshua White, (Director of episodes of Seinfeldand The Max Headroom Show, creator of Joshua Light Show).
Guy Richards Smit, creator of everyone’s favorite vodka-soaked artist, the megalomaniacal and buffoonish Jonathan Grossmalerman will be in attendence for a Q&A with art critic Ezrha Jean Black along with costar and buzz-worthy performance artist Jibz Cameron (Dynasty Handbag).
THE GROSSMALERMAN SHOW was shot with multiple cameras in front of a live studio audience in Autumn 2014 at the Boiler, a cavernous art gallery in Brooklyn, as part of a multi-platform exhibition. In the series, the artist Jonathan Grossmalerman, a once successful painter in a serious career slump has been offered an exhibition at his dream gallery…but there’s a catch! He can’t show any of the incredibly explicit paintings that helped make his name. All that pressure would be enough to send any artist into a full-fledged creative crisis, but Grossmalerman still has to contend with the haunted Basquiat painting his girlfriend just dragged home, his estranged eleven year old daughter who just moved in and the studio assistant’s poor book keeping which sets off a violent string of events that include but are not limited to, an assassin, a spit take and a very angry collector.
Smit assembled a first rate cast of some of New York’s most talented performers including Jibz Cameron (Dynasty Handbag) Jenn Harris (Silence! The Musical) Neal Medlyn (Champagne Jerry) Ana Matronic (Scissor Sisters) Carmine Covelli (the Julie Ruin) Vinny Lopez (Two JasperJohns) and introducing the charming Sadie Parker.
