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.

Why Does Will Arnett Have So Many Failed Comedies?

Over the past 4 years, Will Arnett has starred in 5 series; "Running Wilde", "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret", "Up All Night", "The Millers", and the limited series of "Arrested Development" (after that 10 year break). "The Millers" was the only one to have a second season. And yet, since 2006, he’s received 5 Emmy nominations, once for the third season of "Arrested Development" and the other four as guest actor for "30 Rock". So why is an actor as talented as Will Arnett, not making hit TV series? What is the divide? What isn’t working?
