The Comedy Bureau Field Report Ep. 102: Val Douroux & Starting Comedy Festivals

Of all the grandiose comedy goals one might have had over the last two years, starting a comedy festival in a national park in Utah was probably both far out of sight as well as far from being a potential reality. The effervescent and determined writer/comedian/producer Val Douroux truly pulled off doing a comedy festival in Zion National Park with the Electric Comedy Festival, not once, but twice. Douroux walks through that journey of starting a DIY comedy festival in the unlikeliest of times with TCB’s Jake Kroeger and shares in her joy for the art form.

Also “hot” takes on Muppet Mayhem, Spirit Award comedy winners, and more.
