Hollywood Talents Rally for LA Comedy Festival

Patton Oswalt, Megan Mullally, Marc Maron, Bob Odenkirk, and many more talents in comedy and TV have joined forces to bring an alternative comedy festival to Los Angeles.

Organizers have set up a kickstarter page to raise $20,000 in production costs. They’ve got 30 days to reach their goal, or the festival, called RIOT, won’t happen. So far, things are looking rosy. Just nine days into the fundraising, nearly $12,000 has been pledged. We’re optimistic that, come this fall, LA is going to have its very own comedy fest.

Donors receive some pretty cute swag, which is no doubt helping the fundraising efforts. I wouldn’t mind one of those t-shirts…

Henry Rollins, Megan Mullally, Josh Radnor and More Perform The Pale King by David Foster Wallace

When David Foster Wallace committed suicide in 2008, he left behind legions of grieving fans, a gaping hole in the literary world, and an unfinished novel about agents of the Internal Revenue Service in Peoria, Illinois. That book, pieced together and published posthumously, will be brought to life this coming Thursday by a handful of Hollywood notables.

THE PALE KING: MONOLOGUES FROM THE UNFINISHED NOVEL BY DAVID FOSTER WALLACE will take place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills on April 28. Performers include Henry Rollins, Rosemarie DeWitt, Adam Scott, Rob Delaney, René Auberjonois, and more. The event is being hosted by LA Times book critic, David L. Ulin, and sponsored by PEN Center USA.

Tickets for the event go for $25 and $65 and are available from both the Saban Theatre box office and Ticketmaster. The latter will gouge you on fees.
