All hail VHS! There’s a brand-new Found Footage Festival for 2017, and it’s coming your way! Nick and Joe, the Found Footage guys, are making their triumphant return to Tucson, and they’re bringing an all-new, all-hilarious avalanche of odd, ridiculous and downright hilarious videos with them. Prepare yourself for an evening of live comedy and video insanity you’ll never forget, no matter how hard you try!
“Skull-crushingly funny.” – The Onion
The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event showcasing VHS relics salvaged from thrift stores, garage sales and garbage cans across the country. Curators/hosts Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Colbert Report) take audiences on a guided tour of their latest and greatest VHS finds, providing live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these video obscurities. From the curiously-produced industrial training video to the forsaken home movie donated to Goodwill, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.
Found Footage Festival: Volume 8 highlights include a collection of satanic panic videos from the 80s, including “The Law Enforcement Guide to Satanic Cults”; a star-studded Desert Storm parade sponsored by Taco Bell; outtakes and on-air bloopers from over ten years of North Dakota local news; and selections from David Letterman’s Video Collection, inherited by the Found Footage Festival when Dave retired.
