About the Comedy Ninja Film Festival: 
The 1st Annual COMEDY NINJA Film Festival aims to be an uproarious three-day comedy free-for-all that will have audiences rolling in the aisles as it showcases the funniest work of comedic performers, directors, and writers from around the globe. 

Besides showing a bunch of rib-tickling films, the COMEDY NINJA Film Festival will feature hysterical performances by stand-up comedians, surprise guest appearances, and a rocking opening night party. There will also be a closing night ceremony where COMEDY NINJA Awards will be handed out in all categories. 

The COMEDY NINJA Film Festival is being presented by seasoned filmmakers Quentin Lee (”The People I’ve Slept With,” “White Frog”) and Chuck Parello (”Ed Gein,” “The Hillside Strangler”). Veterans of many film festivals themselves, Lee and Parello are looking to provide an unpretentious and memorably fun event for filmmakers that will allow them to network with industry insiders as their gut-busting work is shown to an appreciative audience. About the COMEDY NINJA Film Festival Quentin Lee states, "We want to celebrate the things that make people laugh the hardest, to show distinctively hilarious films from distinctively off-the-wall perspectives. This festival will be all about comedy with a kung fu kick."
