BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Marriott Hotels & Resorts, the signature brand of Marriott International, and WIRED, hosted An Evening with Funny Or Die earlier this week at Marina del Rey Marriott.

Funny Or Die curated a lineup of today's hottest comedians including: Kristen Schaal (30 Rock, The Daily Show), James Adomian (Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay), Maria Bamford (Louie), Andres du Bouchet (Conan), Jerrod Carmichael (Goodwin Games) T.J. Miller (Rock of Ages) and surprise appearance by Sean Patton (Conan).


The invite-only event was standing room only with 240 guests who were treated to nearly two hours of laugh out loud comedy. Special guests in the audience included singer and actor, Asher Monroe (NBC's Parenthood and Fame). The evening topped off with a spectacular after party at Glow, where guests sipped SkinnyGirl cocktails, noshed on Tex-Mex hors d'oeuvers, cheesecake pops and listened to the spins of DJ R-Rated.

This was the second event of the WIRED + Marriott Culturazzi Series, part of WIRED and Marriott's partnership with WIRED Insiders — startup executives, digital game changers, gadget gurus, culture vultures, and adventurers — to curate monthly events through December, hosted at Marriott hotels, aimed to inspire, inform and entertain the next generation of travelers who blend work and play.

Marriott Hotels & Resorts has been reimagining the guest experience, transforming its lobbies and public spaces for the next generation of travelers and the Marina del Ray Marriott offers the perfect blend of productivity and tranquility, with 18,000 sq. ft. of conference, meeting and event space with breathtaking views of the Malibu Mountains and the Pacific Ocean serving as the backdrop.
