Bridgetown Comedy Festival Makes a HUGE Mistake

The coolest, hippest, most inventive show in the world gets denied access into the once prestigious Bridgetown Comedy Festival this year, stunning critics and comedy fans worldwide.

“All Of The Cats – Hosted by Ramble Bamble, featuring Jimble Jambles,” Was created by Andy Erikson and Erik Allen late one night, about 3 weeks ago, coincidentally on the eve of the Bridgetown Comedy Festival submission deadline. This show was the brainchild of what can only be referred to as an intense sugar high. Erikson and Allen toiled for over an hour, honing their description, perfecting their pitch, watching cat videos on youtube… and NONE of this was rewarded. It’s pretty clear that the Bridgetown Comedy Festival is cat racist. Which is one of the worst forms of racism especially among cats.

We should probably just get to it and let you see for yourselves. Below is a screen capture of the submission, so you can see with your very own eyes, the blatant injustice.

Description: For this show we go and get all of the cats in Portland. All of the cats we can find. ALL of the cats. Todos Los Gatos. Gracias. We fill the seating area with All of the Cats. No people allowed. Maybe a few elderly people, but only if there’s enough seats for the cats. This 4 hour show is hosted by the talented Ramble Bamble and his Jimble Jambles. Jimble Jambles is what Ramble Bamble calls comedians. There will be 50 Jimble Jambles performing. The Jimble Jambles perform their jokes to the cats. Whoever gets the most meows wins as many cats as they can fit inside a reusable grocery bag. (for the environment.) NO DOGS ALLOWED.

ALL OF THE CATS! ALL OF THE FUN!

I hope this public shaming has taught you a lesson, Bridgetown Comedy Festival. Good luck trying to get anybody to come to your festival May 7th to the 10th in Portland Oregon and online at bridgetowncomedy.com now that all this controversy has been unearthed!

Oh, and you can keep my stupid $20 submission fee, and use it to pay for all the weird donuts you leave out in the green room for the comics! BOOM. You heard me! Take that!
