I thought they had a pretty good balance this year with "Lucy" events and "Comedy" stuff -- so it would be great next year if they can build on that and bring in Lucy-related people in the vein of Wanda and Gregg. As for comedy, it would be the best of both worlds if they scheduled a new/young comedian in next year's Madigan slot and a comedy headliner with a Lucy connection who are still touring, such as Rickles, Cosby, Conway, Betty White, Vicki Lawrence, etc. I'd mention Carol Burnett but I think we have all accepted that will never happen by this point. lol

Right on, Brock! Well said. :)

 

I like the choice in dates. I have a wedding to attend on August 2, so I was holding my breath, crossing my fingers and saying a prayer that the festival would be the next weekend.

 

Now back to preping my walker and myself for the 5K. :D

Any word yet on when we can expect some announcements on lineup? Last year, they announced the preliminary schedule on April 12 and gave us fair warning the announcement was coming on March 23.

Wednesday, April 9th they are announcing.

 

Excellent! I look forward to seeing what they come up with.

 

As per tradition, can we get our customary "Where's Carol Burnett?!" complaints out of the way now? lol

You know who would make a really awesome guest, Carol Burnett. Wonder if they ever thought of that? Someone told me once she was friends with Lucy.

 

OK there you go.

If Whoopi Goldberg "penciled" LucyFest in again this year, I hope someone confiscates her eraser.

Not a fan?

 

I am a fan, but Whoopi said via video at the first of the newly re-vamped Festivals that she had "penciled" in the the next year's Festival into her schedule. The next year rolled around...and nothing. Organizers them said "penciled" did not mean confirmed, or some such nonsense.

Ok who's going because this is enough to get me back from my 7 year hiatus.

 

:HALKING: I plan on being there. Let's do a Lounge dinner while Jay is telling topical Monica Lewinsky jokes on stage. :D

It looks like Lucie's performance is during Jay's show, though. :/

What idiot scheduled that?

 

A wise person who anticipated people who can't stand Jay Leno? LOL

 

And yes, Best Western!
