The show will also feature popular segments The Feed with Jim Grammond and Story Time with Mike Rainey along with some surprises. City Paper talked about the event in their weekly comedy column LOL With It last Friday, you can read the story online.

Local filmmakers are looking for help in funding a new comedy project through Kickstarter. Their mission statement from creator Derrick Metellus: “Our television project Quarter Life Crisis is on Kickstarter. We’re shooting in April, and from now to then will be releasing some pretty funny material.  This is no student project, we’re aiming for cable. If you dont mind laughing, keep up with our updates. I promise not to beat you over the head with it. If you like it, you like it. If not, that’s cool. Thanks.”
