Raised by 70s comedy, Cannone’s influences include malaprop comedian Norm Crosby, Wacky Packages, Carol Burnett, Mad Magazine, and the disembodied PA from M*A*S*H (the television series). The practices and presentation of conceptual art have also left an indelible mark: the seriality of Sol Lewitt, the proto-crowdsourcing of Douglas Huebler, the vocal delivery in Robert Barry’s audio pieces, and Lawrence Weiner as a photographic subject. Cannone’s projects, often collaborative, encourage communal acts of parody. He mixes seriality with fandom and creates parallel universes. Sometimes he just tells jokes.
