"The 7th Annual Burbank CoVedy Festival " is the first exclusively virtual global comedy festival produced and showcased by the Flappers Comedy Club & Restaurant. It was staged on August 9-22, 2020. No doubt you can still find it online.
In a time of pandemic, the world needs laughter. The name of the festival is a play on Covid-19, another name for Coronavirus
This entertaining hoopla comedy festival is featuring podcasts, hosting celebrity personalities, and over 250 talented comedians who were carefully selected worldwide through an extensive 12 month submission process.
A variety of Q &As with Rob Paulsen, Jimmy Pardo, Jackie Kashian, Jimmy Dore, Laurie Kilmartin, and many more are being showcased.
Come check out world class comedians as well as many undiscovered, talented jesters and humorists. This festival includes workshops in writing, marketing, and stand-up performance.
Ben Rosen is a comedian and writer who performs all over Los Angeles. He has written jokes for Nickelodeon, Cracked, and CollegeHumor but is best known for being Mark Zuckerberg's doppelganger.
Many past attendees in the Burbank Comedy Festival have successfully acquired representation, and future work opportunities in many major TV pilots/ episodes, comedy festivals and film.
There were virtual After Parties with an entertaining DJ and auxiliary Interactive Activities.
I was able to watch the Flappers Comedy Club- Virtual Bar on Thursday August 13, 2020 at 8 pm with 11 talented and funny comedians and one Emcee Ray Lau. Lau is an amusing Asian Emcee who through away his major in communications to pursue a career in comedy if not he can try acting , as he is cuter than "Ronny Chieng" from Crazy Rich Asians.
