Recording: Are Comedy Festivals the New Music Festival?, Mar 13, 2018

Comedy is undeniably having a moment right now, from stand up specials to satire to sold-out arenas. With comedians as big as rock stars, it's only natural that comedy and music blend together in the festival world. Clusterfest creators Kent Alterman, President of Comedy Central and Jonathan Mayers, Co-founder, Superfly peel back the curtain on the motivation and creative process behind the successful mix of comedy and music and the inner workings of a huge comedy festival.
