American Comedy, Music & Arts Festivals, Pt 4: Bumbershoot

The demand for comedy is growing at music & arts festivals around the country and Seattle's own annual Bumbershoot is no exception. In 2007, the festival hosted three stages solely for comedy and even more funny acts are in the works for Labor Day weekend 2008.

In the line up so far are: Human Giant & Friends (Aziz Ansari, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel and pals), Satiristas (to feature Marc Maron, Janeane Garofalo, Rep. Richard (Dick) Martin and Tom Rhodes), PRI's "The Sound Of Young America!", Tig Nataro, Michelle Buteau, Zach Galifianakis, TJ Miller, Nick Thune, Jessi Kline and two showcases from the People's Republic of Komedy. For starters.

Bumbershoot's comedy shows have become so popular that this year the event has put together a comedy pass that you can collect early in the day in order to assure yourself a seat at the comedy stage of your choice through the afternoon and evening.

Updates to follow.
