Limestone Comedy Festival is proud to announce a live taping of W. Kamau Bell & Hari Kondabolu's hit podcast, Politically Re-active! Comedians and longtime friends Bell and Kondabolu have a shared curiosity about politics and our constantly changing electoral landscape. Whether it's an interest in exposing the unjust or the absurd, you can count on Hari and Kamau to ask the important "why?" Why do we have super delegates? Why is it still so hard for people to vote? Why was Joe the Plumber a thing? Join us Friday afternoon at The Buskirk-Chumley Theatre!

6/2/17 - 4pm @ Buskirk-Chumley Theater


A special screening of "Punching Henry" followed by a Q&A with the film's star and creator Henry Phillips.

In this hyper-intelligent comedy, a journeyman comedian (Henry Phillips) is lured to L.A. by a TV producer (J.K. Simmons, Whiplash) who wants to make him a reality star. As reality sets in, he must decide whether his legacy will be to tell jokes for a living or become the butt of them. With an all-star cast including Sarah Silverman, Tig Notaro, Jim Jefferies, Doug Stanhope, and more, PUNCHING HENRY is a hilarious and heartwarming glimpse behind the curtain at the weird world of comedy.

6/3/17 - 1pm @ Buskirk-Chumley Theater
