First L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival starts tomorrow

Set for kick off tomorrow, the first annual L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival aims to uncover new comedic talent through a series of screenings and panels driven by the underappreciated short-film medium (hey, we try!).

“Started by funny people, for funny people,” the four-day fest features plenty of boldface names, including Aisha Tyler, Adam Carolla, Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder and others who have worked on shows like Saturday Night Live and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. It’s also cheap: A full pass runs under $100.

The festival runs through Sunday at the Downtown Independent Theatre in Los Angeles.
