Make The Green Gravel Comedy Festival in Iowa
Lee Keeler, Matt Mesaros, Evan Watkins, and Derek Eadon are looking to throw one heck of a comedy festival in Iowa and are currently raising funds to put on The Green Gravel Comedy Festival.
They’ve started an IndieGoGo campaign and are attempting to raise $13,000 by Dec. 20th, which you might want to donate for the simple fact this promo video features not only Johnny Pemberton, The Walsh Brothers, John Ennis, and Josh Fadem, but also Todd Glass as “The Mayor of Iowa”.
Honestly, this could be really great and we hope that we can all make this happen.
