Affair: JASHFESHT Comedy & Music Festival

When: Saturday, April 2 - Sunday, April 3, 2016

Hot Spot: Snapshot Studios, Palm Springs, CA

Deets: JASH – the comedy collective founded by Michael Cera, Sarah Silverman, Reggie Watts and Tim & Eric – announced their inaugural JASHFESHT Comedy Festival. The two-day destination weekend kicks off Saturday, April 2, 2016 and will feature live comedic and musical performances, screenings, talent panels and more.

JASHFESHT will be a unique and historic gathering of the comedy community, creating a grassroots and experiential vibe for comedy’s most passionate fans and creators. Set in Palm Springs, the legendary entertainment getaway locale, JASHFESHT will deliver a weekend of leisure and relaxation while creating an intimate weekend of comedy, music and community.

JASH recently partnered with Verizon go90 to create original content for the new streaming app. Creating a unique experience to showcase the new programming, JASHFESHT will premiere several pieces at the inaugural event. Premieres will include new episodes of “Pound House” starring Doug Lussenhop & Brent Weinbach and “Arkippiana” from UCB Founder Matt Besser.

“The past few months we’ve been cranking out a ton of amazing comedic content— incredible short films, music videos, animation, television pilots— all of which will be released first on Go90,” said JASH co-founder Daniel Kellison. “So, in short, the goal of our first JASHFESHT is to gather all our creators— all the comedians and musicians we love— and have a big grassroots weekend party with a bunch of comedy shows, screenings and concerts.”

“Our partnership with go90 allows us to create a ton of amazing content and puts them in a meaningful role within the comedy community overnight," said JASH co-creator and executive producer Mickey Meyer. “JASHFESHT celebrates these creators and the awesome content they’re making.”

Since its launch in 2013, JASH has made a name for itself not only for its unique content but for its scope of comedians and content showcased over the years. The fan-oriented festival will give the red carpet experience to all in attendance, providing guests with great comedy and a taste of Palm Springs’ parties and nightlife.

JASHFESHT will take place at Snapshot Studios (4575 E Camino Parocela, Palm Springs, CA 92264), a combined photography studio and event space. Programming for both the outdoor stage and inside screening room will be announced in the coming weeks. LA-based artists will also create a mural on-site throughout the fest.
