Cat Videos Live!
Wednesday, October 4
7pm Doors //
provides a genuine atmosphere for animal lovers to experience the cat video phenomenon – together. Cat Videos Live! and CatVideos.com have partnered to bring exclusive content to the big screen. In addition, Cat Videos Live! is a forum for cat video creators to showcase their cats.
The event is hosted by New York City based comedienne and entertainer, Carla Rhodes. Mentored by Shari Lewis, creator of children’s icon Lambchop, Carla is a multi-faceted talent who has performed with a wide array of artists such as Neil Hamburger, The Eels and Tim Heidecker (of Tim & Eric).
“You love them. You mock them. But one thing you can’t do is stop watching them. Yes, we’re talking about Internet cat videos. Which either represent the pinnacle of human creative
achievement, or a sign that the apocalypse is nigh. Or both.” – Los Angeles Times
“The Internet Cat Video Festival made an act of isolation (sitting alone in front of your computer screen) into a celebration of togetherness. Walking towards the parking ramp, I noticed that people who were previously strangers were now interacting with ease. Cars were letting other cars pull ahead of them. Everyone was happy and being kind.” – BBC
“Game over. Cats have won the Internet. At least that was the conclusion among the many attendees of the Internet Cat Video Festival on Friday. Decked out with cat ears and painted-on whiskers, they lined up around the block to do in a group what they already do in front of their computers.” – Chicago Sun Times
Ticket sales are donated to local charities, Panthera.org and Friends4Life.org
