Comedy Festival in Traverse City 2013

What's so funny about watching stand-up comedians?  Well...everything!  Laughter is the best medicine and the doctor(s) are in, at least they will be in a few weeks.  The 2013 Traverse City Comedy Fest is back and with a vengeance.  I received an email the other day from my friends Mike & Jeff (founders of the TCCF) and this is a snippet of what they had to say.

Take a look at our roster of amazing comediansOur advice -- go to as many shows as you can! Most shows will have TWO comedians performing. We've kept the ticket prices low so that the thousands of people coming to TC February 14-17 can enjoy as many shows as possible.

Here's a small sample of the 25 comedians coming to TC:

Colin Quinn - star of screen and stage -- SNL Weekend Update, Broadway, TCWCAF Opening Night!
Dick Gregory - in concert! and receiving our TC Comedy Fest Legends award
Robert Wuhl - doing his one man show, a hilarious take on American history
Jeff Garlin & 
Susie Essman - married on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," appearing together live!
Set List with Paul Provenza & Troy Conrad - a spin on the traditional stand-up showcase
Pete Holmes - on Variety's 2011 Top 10 Comics to Watch 
for a reason.

Thanks guys, and we all look forward to a great festival Feb. 14-17.  Like I always say, Be there or be...somewhere else.
