Moontower Comedy Festival Must See Shows of 2016

MOONTOWER COMEDY & ODDITY FESTIVAL is back up this month, running from April 20th through the 23. Since its inception in 2012, Moontower has been one of the highlights of the festival year, bringing together an incredible lineup of comedy stars, comics just about to break, and international stars who you might not be familiar with yet. More focused on fans than industry, Moontower also has a reputation for being a comedy summer camp- three days where comics and fans can chill out, enjoy great bbq, drink, and enjoy one the city and the comedy. The venues are all close enough together that you don't need a car if you're staying nearby, adding to the community vibe, the parties are excellent, the ping pong tournament has become legendary but none of that matters without great comedy, and the comedy is always great.

Comedy’s Cupid! A Comedy Valentine’s Day Wish List

With Valentines Day right around the corner, love is in the air-- but is it in the green room of comedy venues around the U.S.? Apparently not, since these more than eligible laugh makers are still making reservations for one. Hopefully, with a little help from our very own Cupid, these guys and gals will live laugh-ily ever after (and maybe even record a dual stand-up special!).

Big Jay, Dan Soder and Rick Shapiro Star in Animated Short Featuring O.J., Osama Bin Laden and Hitler

In the last few decades, we've seen superhero movies go from clear-cut, black & white celebrations of Good triumphing over Evil to moody, subtle meditations on the gray areas in between and the very idea of what makes a Hero. Luis J Gomez and Dave Smith have waded into this murky territory with their new animated short The Alliance of Really Really Good People. But as you can imagine coming from two thirds of Legion of Skanks, "subtle" it is not. This teaser episode promises to show that some of the worst people in history, from Hilter to Justin Bieber, are merely misunderstood defenders of America.
