Event dynamo Michael Moore has teamed up with comedian Jeff Garlin to launch the Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival. The inaugural comedy fest takes place this weekend (February 19-21, 2010) and features and impressive roster of established comedians including Roseanne Barr, John Waters, Whitney Cummings, JB Smoove, Mike Birbiglia along with some up-and-coming comedians, films and associated hoopla. View the schedule of comedians and special events & films and order tickets!
The venues that they use for the annual Traverse City Film Festival will be converted to have a nightclub feel and they’ll even be doing free, late night shows in the basement of Horizon Books hosted by Jeff Garlin. They’ll also be having a free, outdoor showing of the comedy classic Groundhog Day with special live features. All in all, it’s shaping up to be a one-of-a-kind experience for Michigan comedy fans!
