Rob Schneider and his comedy brother David Spade are gearing up for ‘Comedy In Your Car’ – a live performance in Ventura. Jessica Vilchis gets a preview.
The loose, zanily charming CHIEF ZABU, a comedy about real estate, ambition, sex and politics, starring Allen Garfield, Ed Lauter and Zack Norman, that was lost for 30 years, only to re-materialize recently for barnstorming screenings across the country featuring Norman and co-director/co-writer Neil Cohen, continues its mission to take over the world by now becoming available to rent or purchase on Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu! Sitting on the film for this long, after the original distributor went bankrupt, has allowed Cohen and Norman to think about what worked and what did not in the original cut; they reckoned if they were going to release it in in the 21st century, they were going to do it right. No one said the release had to act as some sort of “confessional” of creative sins committed 30 years ago; they wanted to put the best possible film out.

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to disrupt the live-entertainment industry, individual promoters and producers have started to think outside the box. Leading the way in Southern California is CBF Productions, the company behind such beloved events as the Boots & Brews Country Music Festival and Tequila & Taco Music Festival.
Their new concept is called “Concerts in Your Cars,” which takes places in the Ventura County Fairgrounds parking lot in Ventura, California.
“It’s been quite the journey, but we’re really excited how it’s turning out,” said Vincenzo Giammanco, founder and CEO of CBF Productions. “My company has been around since 2009, and we normally produce 12 large-scale events a year that range anywhere from 15,000 to 30,000 people. … And March hit, and basically I came to the realization that potentially the whole year could be squashed and done.”
Giammanco and his team needed to pivot in order to keep offering entertainment to their many fans. As the CEO put it: they needed to do something. There were no alternatives.
