Every year, I gather a group of two hundred or so people at a hunting lodge in the mountains of Southern California for MaxFunCon. It’s a celebration of creativity and comedy, with classes, talks and performances from the best comics in the world. Past guests have included folks like Dick Cavett, The Upright Citizens Brigade, Marc Maron, Maria Bamford, Lee Unkrich, Jad Abumrad, Andrew WK, Al Madrigal, John Hodgman, Mary Roach, Brooke Gladstone, Pendleton Ward and many more. It’s never failed to sell out, and tickets just went on sale. Perhaps it’s obvious, but they make a wonderful holiday gift. You can buy yours here.
