Mumbai: Dennis Adamovich has joined TBS in the newly created role of senior vice president and general manager of comedy festivals, according to an announcement by Turner Entertainment Networks president Steve Koonin.
Adamovich’s first order of business will be to oversee TBS and AEG Live’s The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, taking place in November. He will also start preparations for Just For Laughs: A Very Funny Festival, a joint venture between TBS and Just For Laughs set to take place in Chicago in summer 2009.
