 Crossroads Comedy Festival In it's third year, Crossroads Comedy Festival garners attention from comedians, improv groups, sketch groups and podcasts from all over the world. This year, the festival has been scaled down due to a venue closing abruptly. However, we are already working on securing venue space for 2018 to make Crossroads the large festival crowds are used to.
