Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival

Say What, Aspen?

So I thought I would get a break after being thrown into the National College Comedy Competition in February and doing a whirlwind tour of such stimulating mid-western college hamlets as Normal, IL and Eau Claire, WI. There were three of us covering 48 events nationwide in 9 weeks, searching for the funniest college kids in the US. It was like being a part of the Rolling Stones without all the, um, glory and booze.

Not so much with the break. Events Marketing is now ramping up for some serious awesomeness in Aspen, CO at the end of the month. Say what?

Yeah, so HBO used to host this weekend comedy affair, inviting all the Hollywood mucky-mucks out to Aspen for some serious schmoozing. But since they dropped out last year, we’re picking up where they left off and bringing the fest underground and online. Seeing as how we’re all about getting comedians who wouldn’t typically be given the opportunity for mass distribution via that old TV screen – the theme of the sparkly new Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival is Comedy meets Interactive Media.

The rest, after the jump.
