Whether you love him or hate him (there’s usually no in between) Michael Moore has been involved in worldwide entertainment for many years. He is the creator of such controversial documentaries Fahrenheit 911, Bowling for Columbine, and his latest endeavour, Sicko.

These days, it seems that Moore has retreated a bit from the highly opinionated, passionate films. He now has plans in the works for a comedy festival in his hometown of Traverse City, Michigan.

Enter the Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival. The weekend long festival will feature comedy stand up, sketches, and movies, along with various other entertainment. Moore will have help in creating the new fest — his buddy Jeff Garlin (of the television show Curb Your Enthusiasm) will be one of the organizers as well.

This will be the second festival Moore has started in Michigan. He is also the creator of the Traverse City Film Festival, which just so happens to end today.

There is little information being released about the new festival, but as the event is planned, I’m sure we will be hearing more news from Moore.

Perhaps this is a good thing for the actor/activist. I mean, he sure did manage to piss off a lot of people with his past films. Sometimes, it may be easier to take a break and enjoy the comedy instead of create it.

(I’m still secretly waiting for his next film.)
