The sponsorship comes with CRACKED re-launching its new website, CRACKED.com, immediately before the start of the Festival. "We see this sponsorship is a great way to re-introduce this 47 year-old comedy brand to a new audience of adults who love comedy and who like to laugh at people," says Monty Sarhan, CEO and Publisher of CRACKED. During the Festival, CRACKED.com will also be providing coverage of key events, including Festival exclusives such as what George Sarris is wearing (today's answer is boxers) and how comedian Jim Mendrinos' beard is growing in. "We think it' off to a good start, except for a small patch to the right of his upper lip," Sarhan added.
