Inside Joke at the 2015 Moontower Comedy Festival

 How is it already June?! I’m still catching my breath from this year’s fest! And it’s not just because I’m out of shape! If you were at the festival this year, chances are you were out watching shows and may have missed some of our interviews with the incredible talent at this year’s Moontower. Kerri Lendo and I were thrilled to be able to talk to so many headliners and up-and-coming comics this past April and we even set a new record for interviews logged. There are so many highlights that I can’t even begin to name my favorite bits. It was an absolute honor meeting heroes like Jonathan Katz and Patton Oswalt for the first time and old favorites Andy Kindler, Maria Bamford, and Brendon Walsh were reliably hilarious. Take a look back and let me know what your favorites are!
