The organizers of the L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival promise their mission was “started by funny people, for funny people.” We'll be the judge of that! The fest is four days of comedic short films that should be funnier than that viral video of the drugged-out kid who's just been to the dentist. Let's hope so, though I am worried because the press release is so poorly written. Case in point: “With events hosted by Aisha Tyler and Adam Carolla, there will be panel discussions where 'Famous People Talking about Sh*t' and an Opening Night Gala where everyone will be 'Flavor Tripping,' the latest hot trend, Miracle Fruit, which is a small red berry that tricks the taste buds into perceiving sour flavors as sweet as candy!” There is nothing funny about dangling modifiers.
