Yes, Moisture Festival. As in that time of year when it’s not quite rainy, but not quite sunny. In Seattle, that would translate to moist. The unlikely name for, perhaps, the most successful, awesome gathering of live entertainment in the United States.
The Moisture Festival is a four-week celebration of comedy varietè; that rare kind of amazing talent I remember from the Ed Sullivan Show. Except this is live and at several venues across Seattle.
Each year of its nearly twenty-year run, venues range from ACT’s Main Stage to the Broadway Performance Hall. But the festival’s home is Hale’s Palladium, a former Hale’s Brewery warehouse converted to a nearly 300-seat theater.
The festivities begin this Thursday, March 16th and run through April 9th. Ticket prices are so reasonable you’ll be pinching yourself at your good fortune. And, just in case you feel like you’ve seen it all, The Moisture Festival attracts talent from around the world.
