It’s sort of a big deal. And this year, JFL is offering not one, but three groups of New Faces, presented by CollegeHumor and categorized as such: New Faces of Comedy, and New Faces of Comedy: Characters (the best in sketch performers) New Faces of Comedy: Unrepped, which includes comics that work without agents or managers.
