New York City, New York
Festival of Fools is pleased to partner with the Vermont Comedy Club again this year. Too much time outside on the street? Get your tickets and save your seat in Vermont’s top-rated comedy venue. Foolishness rolls downhill, right to the doors of VCC where you’ll find Chris Gethard!
Chris Gethard is the host and star of Funny or Die’s “The Chris Gethard Show” on TruTV and the host of the popular Earwolf podcast “Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People.” Chris recently starred in the Mike Birbiglia film, “Don’t Think Twice” and can be seen as ‘Todd’ on Comedy Central’s “Broad City.”
Other credits include Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” “The Office” and the film “The Heat.” Chris is the author of the book “A Bad Idea I’m About to Do” and his first stand-up album (“My Comedy Album”) debuted at # 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart in 2014.
Chris’s one-man show, “Career Suicide” (produced by Judd Apatow) just premiered on HBO after completing a successful off-broadway run at The Lynn Redgrave Theatre in NYC. This is your chance to catch Chris on the Vermont Comedy Club’s Stage. Also featured will be Fools and Sam Adam’s inspired drinks, crafted by VCC’s award-winning staff.
Street Performers will be up & down the Church Street Marketplace Friday, noon-10 p.m.; Saturday, 11-10 p.m.; & Sunday, 11-6 p.m.
