We rounded up a bunch of cartoonists for the latest FISTICUFFS! at 92YTribeca and put them into opposing teams who battled it out the only way cartoonists know how to battle—by drawing cartoons! It is “an Iron Chef-like battle of the cartoonists,” as The New York Observer observed.
Last week’s show featured cartoonists Hilary Price (Rhymes with Orange), Eric Lewis (Animal Nuz, The New Yorker), Matt Diffee (The Rejection Collection, The New Yorker) and Drew Dernavich (The New Yorker), hosted by writer and comedian Patrick Borelli (Comedy Central, “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"). There was also be a surprise musical guest, Howard Fishman and band. Our favorite cartoon from the night? That would have to Matt Diffee’s presentation, his Texas Dashboard Organizer. Check out a complete photo album from the evening on 92YTribeca’s Flickr page.
