This weekend, Skidmore College is hosting the 25th National College Comedy Festival. The annual event was first organized in 1990 by Skidmore alum David Miner. Miner, now a television producer with credits for shows including "30 Rock", "Parks and Recreation", and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", also formed the College’s first comedy group, the Ad-Liberal Artists.
David Miner is the founder of the National College Comedy Festival, being held this weekend at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs. The event continues tonight at 7 p.m. with student comedians, followed by professional groups Good Cop Great Cop and Upright Citizens Brigade All Stars.
