Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, Day 1

The plane we were supposed to take out of Denver was delayed for an hour. This effectively meant that we were to miss our connecting flight to Aspen. The next flight out of Aspen wasn’t until 9:30 at night. Annie and I decided to make the three hour drive in a rented Ford Explorer to Aspen.

Here is a photo of Annie’s reaction to making that drive:

We end up missing the first show (for an in-depth recap of last night’s show, check out Punchline Magazine coverage of our festival).

The semi-finals of the NCCC were a great success, and when all was said and done, Emerson from the East and University of Minnesota from the Midwest will be duking it out for the national title of America’s funniest college team this Saturday. And as always, you can check out the live stream on Saturday (6:45,p Mountain Time) over at the Rooftop Comedy Aspen page.

Also, after the after party, an impromptu rendition of Smashmouth’s All Star was sung by some of the college kids. Video hopefully to come soonish.
