Fun way to experience a comedy festival!
Any additional comments?
This is NOT an audiobook -- it's a fairly brief, behind-the-scenes / on-the-ground listening experience that gives you a feeling of being at a comedy festival. It's fun and enjoyable and a nice extra for being an Audible customer. If you're expecting an audiobook with a strong narrative, you will be sorely disappointed. If you'd like to just be entertained for a bit, and you like comedy, this could be for you.

A really fun slice of a Fest and interviews!
Would you listen to VIP Pass: SF Sketchfest again? Why?
Yeah, there are some great jokes peppered through and I think will definitely be fun repeated listening or background content while I'm doing chores, etc.
Who was your favorite character and why?
MARIA BAMFORD and JANEANE GAROFALO! I'm very happy they got those two on there, they're comedians I really love listening to on and off stage for their unique perspectives and you don't get to hear them talk off stage all that often.
Also, the SKLAR BROTHERS! What a tour de force of comedy and they had a great scene.
What about the narrator’s performance did you like?
There's so many different narrators I don't think you can really comment on this too much.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yeah, an hour piece is such a great consumable thing.
Any additional comments?
Please make more! I'd love one from Just For Laughs, Moontower, Limestone, etc. Maybe also different types of festivals as well!
