Pity the comedy fan who isn’t in the Los Angeles area at the end of January, for they’re about to miss one of the most impressive lineup of comedians ever assembled. From January 29th through the 31st, Riot LA — the city’s premiere alternative comedy festival — will be hosting a slew of comedy behemoths in the downtown area.
Among the scheduled heavy-hitters are Todd Margaret’s David Cross, frequent Portlandia guest and 2016 Spirit Awards cohost Kumail Nanjiani, uber-nerd Patton Oswalt, dapper gent Paul F. Tompkins, and progressive firebrand Janeane Garofalo. (And we haven’t even mentioned Maria Bamford, T.J. Miller, Gilbert Gottfried, Natasha Leggero, Ron Funches, Anthony Jeselnik, Chelsea Peretti, Kyle Kinane, Jonah Ray, Brody Stevens, or the Sklar Brothers. Check out a full list of performers here.)
Tickets for this stand-up bonanza are available at the official website, both for individual shows as well as an all-inclusive Superfan Pass which grants you access to over 40 shows on Saturday and Sunday. (The $375 VIP passes are already sold out!)
Check out the trailer for Riot LA 2016 below. If you’re up for witnessing stand-up comedy at its very best, you really couldn’t do any better than this.
