Founded by Joe Pickett, Nick Prueher and Glenn Severance, their work has been featured on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” “The Onion” and “The Colbert Report.”

Comedian Steve Byrne, star of the TBS show “Sullivan & Son,” will also be performing as part of ISU AfterDark. According to, Byrne has also appeared on an episode of ABC’s “The Middle” and in the movies “Couples Retreat” and “Four Christmases.” 

Both Byrne and the Found Footage Festival are co-sponsored by the Student Union Board.

According to the flyer, students attending will also have the chance to win an iPad. Students must show their ISU ID to claim any prizes won at the event.
