2013 Award Nominee’s & Winners!


The 2013 Laugh or Die Comedy Fest has to be dramatically downsized due to the closing of the Portage Theater (beyond our control and/or involvement), but we still had ALL films screened and judged for awards play!  Tonight we will be celebrating at Otto’s in Dekalb IL the amazing talent (and humor) of all the awesome people involved in the films with some stand up comedians!

Below you will find a list of the top three films / persons in each of our 2013 award categories.
