Best comedy revolution - 2000
A.C.E.'s Aspen Comedy Fringe Fest
There's been only one winner at A.C.E.'s Aspen Comedy Fringe Fest, but that's no surprise: The fest has only one act, even though it takes place at the same time as Aspen's HBO US Comedy Arts Festival. But we'd be happy to draw this card anytime: The three members of the uproarious local improv trio A.C.E. -- Canadian Barb Gehring, American Linda Klein and Englishman Matt Taylor -- are not unfunny in the least, and in fact live and die by their penchant for hurt-free, squeaky clean humor that anyone can appreciate.
