Found Footage Festival: Cherished Gems
Found Footage Festival hosts Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) will take audiences on a guided tour of their all-time favorite VHS finds at the Charleston Comedy Festival. From the curiously-produced industrial training video to the forsaken home movie donated to Goodwill, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.
-Outtakes from an ill-fated Winnebago industrial video featuring Jack
Rebney, the world's angriest RV salesman

Lansbury, adult film star Traci Lords, and a bearded hippie named Zar.
-A high-concept video from 1987 called “Rent-A-Friend,” aimed at
lonely people with VCRs
