Comic Retreat Announces New Home
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Newswire) February 25th, 2011 - Comic Retreat, the leading yearly gathering of stand-up comic performers and entertainment industry professionals, has announced it will be held next year in Fort Lauderdale, January 9 -11th, 2012.
Comic Retreat is the comedy equivalent to what the Sundance Film Festival is to the Indy film industry: the premier showcase for emerging comics. Emerging comics focus on their careers at workshops, parties, showcases, and skill building conferences along with outdoor activities. The annual retreat allows attendees to gain priceless insights and sparks more industry relationships.
"This year was a total success. We had performers not only from across the nation but from across the globe participate" said Victoria Jackson, retreat director. "We had three major cities competing to become our new home. After meeting with the staff of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, we believed that Fort Lauderdale was the perfect new home for Comic Retreat."
B Ocean Fort Lauderdale Hotel, the spectacular recently opened property at the beach will be the host hotel for Comic Retreat 2012.
The final schedule of events will be announced by March 20th, 2011.
