There are festivals going on all around the L.A. area this summer. Some are dedicated to film, some are for gorging on fried food, others are meant to not only make attendees laugh, but to inform them as well. That’s what it’s all about at the Burbank Comedy Festival. It’s a little over a week of stand-up as well as classes and panels that will leave those who are into that scene satisfied.
