Somehow I fooled enough people into believing that I have some importance. From time-to-time I get press releases that I simply look over, and then delete forever from my email. Instead of being a jerk, I figure I might as well share it with you:

About the Comedy Film Festival
The Friars Club continues its tradition of commitment to comedy and nurturing new voices in entertainment with the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival. FCCFF seeks to give comedy films a world-class film festival to call home. On the calendar will be screenings of feature films, documentaries, and shorts from around the world, as well as panel discussions with leading film industry professionals. Films will be presented at the Friars Club clubhouse, supplemented by screenings at nearby theaters within walking distance. A panel of jurors comprised of filmmakers and professionals in the various fields of cinema will award the Festival's Best Feature, Best Documentary, and Best Short distinctions.
Never heard of this particular film festival, but then again there are a bajillion of these events out there. I just found out yesterday about the San Andreas Film Festival-I totes applied for press credentials.
