The Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival will not be returning in 2012. Co-founder Michael Moore says the festival, which started in 2010, will not take place in 2012 and may not return in 2013.
Why? Moore says it's because of "drunks" from a beer festival that takes place the same weekend. He says they interrupt shows and the comedy festival isn't "going to compete with people drinking a lot of beer".
Others have a different take on the reasons for the cancellation.
