The Funny Club Show
The Funny Club show was a traveling exhibition of customized toys by over 140 US and international artists. As their canvas, each artist was given a blank Funny Club, a hyper-articulated 4" figure created by Taiwan toy designer b.b.birdy. His design studio is the first independent manufacturer of designer toys in Taiwan and has produced other notable lines such as the Jay figure, based on popular Taiwanese singer Jay Chou.
