I got on Skype with Craig Cannon, who is a co-founder of Cultivated Wit, the people who bring you Comedy Hack Day (CHD). His background is fascinating, including a stint at the Onion. He now lives in the Bay Area.
I first heard about CHD in a discussion with MLH co-founder Jon Gottfried, who said it was a highlight. That made me take notice, and I decided to attend in late 2014. I describe that experience in a previous episode (http://hackathon.posthaven.com/comedy-hack-day-native-advertising-sponsorship) Part of what makes CHD so special is that it's seamless - every aspect of the show was carefully produced, from entering the parking lot to the final demos.
