About the 2020 Fest

2020 Comedy Festival

Celebrating original, independent films

Thank you for joining us for 2020’s Killer Valley Comedy Festival! We shared some ridiculously fun films from around the world this year, and had a blast!

Films in the comedy festival include “Mr. Dark: A Tasty Burger,” directed by Jesse James Hennessy, who brought a fan-favorite, “Night of the Witch” to our 2020 Horror Film Festival. 

Another Cancer Movie” reunites director Joe Burke with Oliver Cooper (2020 Best Actor, Horror), also from our  2020 Horror Festival (“Desert Quarantine”). 

Spliced throughout the fest were some retro contributions of hilarious VHS commercials from the archives of SkyCorp

Swung 13
We know you like to watch.

Original, Underground Comedy

Limited Streaming

The Killer Valley Comedy Film Festival came about in our 10th year of hosting our horror film festival.

We had so many great horror films that had been made “tongue-in-cheek,” we decided to run two nights: one for “scary” horror fans and one for “funny” horror fans. 

Realizing that outside of genre films like horror, there are so many amazing comedy directors out there and still too few venues to celebrate Comedy Films – so we launched our comedy festival and have had a blast every year!
