Michael Moore & Jeff Garlin Found Comedy Festival
Filmmaker Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine) is teaming with Emmy winner Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) to organize a mid-winter comedy festival. The inaugural Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival will be held Feb. 19-21. It will feature star performers, along with talented up-and-comers. The lineup will be revealed next month. In addition to stand-up performances by established artists, there will be acts featuring improvisational groups and premieres of comedy movies — plus a show for children.
