NY vs LA: The Comedy Scenes
Friday, March 29th 5PM-6PM
The Laughing Skull Festival Presents â€œNY vs LA: The Comedy Scenesâ€� a panel discussion aimed to explore the two comedy meccas. What are the benefits of being in either city? Just how different are the two scenes in regards to stage time? How do you decide where to move? At what point do you make the move? These are common questions for comedians at any stage in their career. Our panel will hope to shed light on topic with comedians and industry who have lived in both cities. Moderated by Tushar Singh.
