anyone have an additional ticket for the shorts tonight?
Hi there folks - is there someone there that looks after press queries? I work for an inflight magazine and am after hi-res imagery of last year's festival for this year's event preview. Many thanks!
If you're a fan of 80's movies like me, you'll be interested in this movie I just came across called CHIEF ZABU Movie. It's satirical comedy about business and politics that was made in 1988 but didn't get released until recently. It's a funny movie with an old-school feel that's still relevant today, definitely worth a watch. It's playing at the Nerdist Showroom CHIEF ZABU at Nerdist Showroom on June 24 and at Westside Comedy Theatre CHIEF ZABU at Westside Comedy Theatre on June 25.
You guys need to get my man AGP aka the Suburban Hooligan aka Alan Peterson on the stage! Best decision you can make! #YouKnowMySteezDoe
