The Found Footage Festival is coming to Grand Rapids on November 3. This one-of-a-kind event features live-comedy and found video, showcasing footage that was found at garage sales, thrift stores, warehouses, and dumpsters throughout the US and Canada. Found Footage Festival hosts, Nick and Joe have taken their impressive collection of odd and hilarious, often surprising, found treasure and distilled it into 90 minutes of just the most sublime spectacles, intriguing characters, and beguiling, if not insightful, looks into those who lived during the golden days of the VHS dynasty. Their comedy credits include The Onion and "Late Show With David Letterman," "The Colbert Report" and "Mystery Science Theater 3000."

Since the first tour in 2004, the Found Footage Festival has gone on to sell out hundreds of shows across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., including the HBO Comedy Festival at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. The festival has been featured on National Public Radio, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and G4 TV’s "Attack Of The Show," and has been named a critic’s pick in dozens of publications, including The Village Voice, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle ("Riotous!"), ("Skull-crushingly funny."), The Stranger, and The Chicago Tribune. The festival was also recently featured in documentary Winnebago Man.
