Now in its third year, the Chicago Comedy Film Festival encourages and rewards independent comedy film-makers and gives them a venue in Chicago. A few years ago, filmmaker, actress, Second City alum and improv teacher Jessica Hardy and her husband Brent Kado were making comedy “mockumentaries” and discovered that there was no Chicago-based venue for them and other comedy filmmakers to show off their work. So they decided to launch their own festival. Response has been huge, and some great comedies have gotten a viewing as a result, not only in Chicago, but in special traveling events around the country.

Jessica, a veteran of community theatre (Dave, John  and Marcia’s home theatre, to be precise), talks with the Geeks about getting the festival underway, and tells us how the event has been evolving over its short history.
