Found Footage Festival

When: Fri., Sept. 14 2012

It's hard to categorize the Found Footage Festival. Obviously, it's film based: Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett have gone through thousands of hours of VHS footage (YouTube is a no-no in their personal mantra), finding the stuff that's "unintentionally funny" and putting it together for the live show. But these guys also have an extensive comedy background — Preuher has worked for The Colbert Report and The Late Show with David Letterman, while Pickett has The Onion on his resume. Their Theatre 99 screening is one stop on a 50-state tour. "Think America's Funniest Home Videos meets Mystery Science Theatre 3000," says Theatre 99's Brandy Sullivan. "I saw their show during Charleston Comedy Festival a few years ago and was amazed by the crazy and hilarious video clips — pre-DVD YouTube era — they had uncovered, and their commentary is the icing on the cake."
