Under The Gun Theater and Zanies Comedy Club present the 9th annual Snubfest Comedy Festival!
Snubfest showcases Comic performers that have been rejected from a festival or stages in the last 12 months and have decided to put themselves on the line for a panel of industry judges to win performance slots on local and national stages. Snubfest since January 2005 has been connecting industry professionals with overlooked talent and bolsters an impressive resume of Alumni including TJ Miller (Comedy Central's Mash Up) , Vanessa Bayer (SNL), Nick Vatterott (Jimmy Fallon), Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black), Cameron Esposito (Late Night with Craig Ferguson) and Jacob Willams (America's Got Talent Finalist) just to name a few.
