Andy Barrett likes cool stuff. He loves to laugh. He has an insatiable creative side. And he's a little off. If you've been to Funhouse Lounge, or more specifically the Clown Room, you've seen the proof. Andy created the Funhouse as a haven for unbridled and inclusive creativity, and so it seems appropriate that this festival originates here. As a director, producer, performer, songwriter, playwright and improv comedian for more than 25 years, he is always looking for that next inspiration. That next amazing group of performers. That next affirmation that life is nothing without humor, love, acceptance & artistic expression. This festival is all that and more. It is important for everyone, everywhere, to see what we are doing here. As a part of this wonderfully diverse family, it is Andy's distinct pleasure to help make this festival possible.
