Snubfest

Festival (sponsored by CIC) featuring Improv, Sketch, Stand Up, Solo Performance, and Short Film that have been over looked by other Comedy Festivals.

"As part of our mission to create performance opportunities we initiated Snubfest, a new breed of comedy festival. In January 2008 the fourth annual Snubfest will continue to provide a venue for artists who have been rejected from other festivals. Sketch, improvisation and stand-up performers also have the chance to compete for performance slots in major comedy festivals throughout the country. Giving an entrance opportunity to up and coming artists who have talent but have not been able to connect with these larger institutions. This festival also empowers the performers to believe in their abilities and push forward to achieve their goals in comedy." (From Founder & Executive Producer Angie McMahon Source)
