Greg Ruth SXSW Comedy Poster 2020 Release

Like everything else the SXSW Comedy Festival 2020 was cancelled and Greg Ruth created an amazing poster for the shows. The blue edition is the regular and the brown was given to performers.

Here's Greg's statement:
"What on earth does this weirdo image have to do with comedy, SXSW, and Texas? (If anything?) 
When we the artists, get the lucky tap to do one of these posters for a favorite show, we are even more blessed with a free hand to basically come up with anything -- as long as it makes a striking image and includes the jester frog somewhere within. It’s a rare gift to be given that freedom, and I confess I took that long rope and ran wild with it, happily. Frankly though, I always liked the idea of comedy being a function of pain fueled by surprise. There’s a pathos behind what makes something funny, and a shared empathy that enjoins us all to laugh together. I guess an upside down, bisected horse, dipped in paint is how I put that idea into a picture. The frog is their fault, the horse we can blame on Texas, and the rest you can blame on me."- Greg Ruth

Here's the list of names that appears on the poster around the boarder:
