A ‘Riot’ Is Coming to L.A. and Other Events

Article Image

Festivals are great networking opportunities, even if you're not performing. RIOT LA, running Jan. 16-18, offers a shoulder-rubbing venue in The Lot, which is a place "to hang before and after shows. Grab a beer or glass of wine. Play some arcade games." You get the idea. The comedy festival is set to feature performers ranging from Maria Bamford to Jeff Ross, who's judging a roast battle.
