12 things not to miss at Light City Baltimore 2017

No comedians, no problem ... at first

The opening filmed piece was fantastic, as hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway got "Inception"-ed by Alec Baldwin. But they're actors; they should be good in a comic bit like that. On stage, their nerves showed a little, but they also projected such a game, let's-put-on-a-show vibe in their opening remarks ("It was a good year for lesbians!") that it didn't really matter. Sadly, the energy of the opening didn't carry through the show as a whole, as Hathaway tried really hard to sell her bits and Franco seemed mostly aloof. -- Rick Porter, Zap2it
