Burbank Comedy Festival


The Burbank Comedy Festival is pleased to announce the 2 Milk Minimum Showcase with host Michael Rayner (Sesame Street) presenting comedy for the whole family, including performances by 10 and 11-year-old stand-up comedians at Flappers Comedy Club and Restaurant, Saturday, August 23 at 4:30 PM.

Rayner performs his juggling show all over the world and on TV including The Late Show with David Letterman and Sesame Street.  He combines years of stand-up with amazing juggling feats to create a vibrant and hysterical show that both kids AND their parents will enjoy.

Rayner will be joined by 10-year-old Neil Aggerwhil (Hollywood Improv, Standing Tall Comed, The Warehouse).  Aggerwhil started making people laugh at an early age by telling jokes and doing impressions. In fact, his first impression was that of a crying baby. He surprised his family by volunteering in a show in Virginia at age 4. The audience went wild and he won $25, which is more than what anyone in his family had made doing stand-up till that time.  Aggerwhil loves to perform improv, and has trained at Second City. He also enjoys performing musical improv and sketch comedy.

The 2 Milk Minimum Showcase also includes 11-year-old Trista Mann.  Mann is a young girl who likes getting big laughs. She is a very creative young comedian that enjoys doing stand-up. Although she is just starting out, her original writing and perspective on life will make the whole family laugh. She connects with all age groups as she shares her unique since of humor.

 In addition to the 2 Milk Minimum Showcase, the Burbank Comedy Festival will feature Adam Carolla, Jeff Garlin, Wendy Liebman, and more than 200 emerging comedians from across the country, Sunday, August 17 through Saturday, August 23.  Hosted by Flappers Comedy Club and Restaurant, and packed with more than 50 special events, the first-ever Burbank comedy festival will include underground showcases, classes, workshops, industry panels, after parties, live festival podcasts, and performances highlighting international talent, off-beat, variety, college, all-female, LBGT, cruise liner and kids comedy.


The festival is dedicated to discovering America’s next comedy superstar.  By pairing emerging comedians with established headliners, the Burbank Comedy Festival is intended to give the next generation of talent the opportunity to perform and connect with top entertainment professionals, to encourage live comedy, and do some funny business.
