JASH YouTube comedy collective announces first JASHFESHT Comedy & Music Festival, set for April in Palm Springs
The JASH YouTube channel has kept fairly quiet over the past six months, but its comedian members plan to remind you they're live and breathing and still full of funny with a live and breathing and full of funny comedy and music festival. They've announced the first JASHFESHT Comedy Festival, happening April 2-3, 2016, in Palm Springs, Calif.
It'll feature live performances and screenings from JASH founding members Sarah Silverman, Reggie Watts, Michael Cera, and Tim & Eric, plus their friends.
From the announcement:
JASH recently partnered with Verizon go90 to create original content for the new streaming app. Creating a unique experience to showcase the new programming, JASHFESHT will premiere several pieces at the inaugural event. Premieres will include new episodes of “Pound House” starring Doug Lussenhop & Brent Weinbach and “Arkippiana” from UCB Founder Matt Besser.
“The past few months we’ve been cranking out a ton of amazing comedic content— incredible short films, music videos, animation, television pilots— all of which will be released first on Go90,” said JASH co-founder Daniel Kellison. “So, in short, the goal of our first JASHFESHT is to gather all our creators— all the comedians and musicians we love— and have a big grassroots weekend party with a bunch of comedy shows, screenings and concerts.”
“Our partnership with go90 allows us to create a ton of amazing content and puts them in a meaningful role within the comedy community overnight," said JASH co-creator and executive producer Mickey Meyer. “JASHFESHT celebrates these creators and the awesome content they’re making.”
