Riot Fest 2013 is rolling up into Toronto this weekend (August 24th and 25th) and we decided it would be fun to give away two pairs of two-day passes. Does that excite you? The two day festival will feature acts like The Replacements, A Day To Remember, Every Time I Die, Best Coast, and more. Details on how to win one of the pairs can be found in the replies. If you don't win, don't fret too much - you can still purchase single day tickets.

Check out the video and deck in the replies.

Running the gamut from sketch to improv to stand-up and shining the spotlight on both veteran comics & rising stars (among which are the likes of Chris Gethard, Aparla Nancherla and Dan Soder), the 1st Annual Brooklyn Comedy Festival is quickly approaching. Luckily for you East coasters, however, our friends over at The Laugh Button (it's their day here today, I guess) are giving away three free passes to this great 5-day showcase beginning on August 19th. All you have to do is be over 21, head over to the contest page, fill out a couple quick boxes, and the rest is left to fate. If you're in the area and able, try your hardest to go regardless; the lineup is stellar for a first-year...
