NYTVF Networking Event for Chicago Comics - April 16th

Forgot to add this in the "What's Popping" section the other day, but I think it 's important enough to get it's own little post. The New York Television Festival is teaming up with the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival to put on a networking/mingling night. Basically, the NYTVF wants to put Chicago filmmakers/comics/writers in the loop with all of their pilot/development opportunities. They’re putting on a FREE cocktail event on April 16 at Stage 773. Here’s the press release with more info:
