Double Forte, an independent communications and influencer marketing firm, kicked off 2018 by signing entertainment power players Comedy Central, the #1 brand in comedy, and Superfly, co-creators of Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, to its growing roster of clients.
Specifically, the company will represent the brands’ collaboration on Comedy Central Presents Clusterfest, a three-day comedy and music festival returning to San Francisco for its second year. Double Forte will service this new client from its San Francisco and New York City offices.
“Clusterfest brings in some of the biggest talent in comedy and music, plus it takes place here in our backyard, so to have earned the opportunity to collaborate with these two world class entertainment brands is a huge deal for our firm,” said Bill Orr, Chief Strategy Officer of Double Forte. “We look forward to helping solidify the festival as the can’t-miss comedy event of the year and strengthening the Clusterfest brand in the San Francisco market and nationwide.”
Comedy Central Presents Clusterfest is a celebration of comedy in all its forms, paired with musical performances and the most delicious food the Bay Area has to offer. Festival attendees will enjoy stand-up and sketch performances, live podcast recordings, as well as immersive attractions from some of the most beloved comedy franchises.
