    A comedian has found (unintentionally) funny old videos and comments on them as you watch (similar to Alamo Drafthouse’s Master Pancake). The Found Footage Festival has been featured on NPR, ABC World News, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and G4 TV’s Attack of the Show. It has been named a Critic’s Pick in dozens of publications, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle and The Chicago Tribune.
