Wanna get your laugh on? Of course you do! It's summer in the land of the free, and two things we all need are air conditioning, and laughs. It is the best way to stay young and beautiful at heart.
2014's Los Angeles Film Festival (from here on out refereed to as LAFF) has teamed up with Funny or Die to bring you stand up comedy, and a short video contest where the winner will be announced on Saturday June 14th after/during the show. The winner will receive prizes. This event will be held Sat, Jun 14th 8:00pm at the GRAMMY Museum.
Performing stand up at Funny or Die's Make 'Em LAFF Showcase are Kumail Nanjiani, Cameron Esposito, Baron Vaughn and Jerrod Carmichael. Hosted by Hasan Minhaj. Of the comedians listed above, Jerrod Carmichael is the only one that I have seen live, he is incredibly talented and if you are into standup, you don't want to miss this event. I recommend that you get your tickets in advance, as LAFF events are known to sell out.

Along with stand up comedy, LAFF brings us more laughs with Harmontown, as part of the LAFF summer showcase.
Harmontown is a documentary movie about writer/producer Dan Harmon, creator of Community and notoriously known as being fired from his own show, and then rehired. A subject he explored immensely in some of his Harmontown live shows held at Meltdown comics prior to the release of this movie.
This documentary, titled Harmontown, follows Dan Harmon and his merry band of friends, including Harmon's girlfriend Erin McGathy, Jeff B. Davis, and Dungeon Master Spencer Crittenden, as they tour the country doing his/their live comedy show. Harmontown is Directed by Neil Berkeley and will be screening one night only, Mon, Jun 16th 7:30pm at the Leo S. Bing Theatre at LACMA. Get your tickets before they sell out, as Dan Harmon has a huge underground Los Angeles following, and this screening will no doubt be sold out.
