War isn't funny. Neither are Planet Earth's environmental woes.
But this Veteran's Day weekend on November 9 and 10, the Friends of Nature Music Festival (AKA FONFEST) will descend upon Virginia Key Beach Park in the hope of making Miami laugh and dance and be merry.
That's right -- these Friends of Nature aren't satisfied with simply entertaining the masses with music, art, cinema, and cuisine (nor are they content with merely educating the public about sustainability, the well-being of the planet, and how to contribute to saving it), they also want you to bust a gut laughing.
High hopes indeed. But with seventeen stand-up comedians scheduled to perform they're confident polluters will not have the last laugh. To find out what's so hilarious about saving the planet, New Times heckled FONFEST comedy booker Jessica Gross via email.
