Guess what? We are going to Bonnaroo. We had so much fun staging comedy shows at SXSW that we are now officially festival-sponsoring addicts. But we’re not signing up for a 12 step program, we’re heading down to Tennessee from June 13 – 16th to sponsor the heck out of a comedy festival within a music festival – the Bonnaroo Comedy Theatre.
This year’s comedy line up is fantastic and we couldn’t be more excited to watch as some festival veterans as well as plenty of up and coming new faces perform at the Bonnaroo Comedy Theatre. Appearing this year, among others, will be: Daniel Tosh, Bob Saget, David Cross, Maria Bamford, Mike Birbiglia, Ed Helms’ Whisky Sour Radio Hour, Comedy Bang!Bang! With Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts, our adopted comic Chris Gethard, Michael Che, Nikki Glaser, James Adomian and more. Excited yet?
If you have never been to Bonnaroo, it’s a four-day festival set on 700 acres in Manchester, TN, that runs from June 13 – 16, and draws 80,000 fans every summer. Featuring over 120 musical performances, along with comedy, cinema, sustainability workshops and more, the grounds are converted into a virtual city of music and art. This year the festival will host a vibrant and diverse collection of national headlining comics at its inimitable air-conditioned venue, where fans lineup to get a chance to commune with some of the most hilarious personalities working today.
