And so the NY Funny Songs Fest comes to an end. What a whirlwind weekend it was! With over 75+ comedic-slash-musical performers sharing 4 gorgeous stages, myriad classes and panels (TimeOutNY, WomenInMusic, MTV, indie record labels and more representing), 200 gift bags, 125 super sexy badges, dozens of sponsors (including live broadcasting a la SiriusXM), 10 delicious pizzas (thanks, Rocket Joe’s!), hundreds of fans, friends and attendees, visitors from as far away as Canada and Portland, Oregon, even jazzy lady toys (shout out to Babeland!) we call this funny festival a serious success.
