From showbiz icons to randy politicians, award-winning illustrator Drew Friedman has been there with his pen since the ’80s to skewer the most famous faces of our time. Now, Friedman, whose work has appeared in the Voice, MAD, The New York Observer, and National Lampoon, among others, is getting his first solo art show, Drew Friedman: My Way, at Scott Eder Gallery. Expect to see everything from Anthony Weiner lounging in the nude on a bearskin rug to Harvey Weinstein as the Incredible Hulk. This will also be the official launch of the re-release of his book Any Similarity to Persons Living or Dead Is Purely Coincidental, a classic collection of cartoons by Friedman and his brother Josh.

Fri., April 27, 6 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m. Starts: April 27. Continues through May 31, 2012
