Funny or Die is back with its annual comedy tour, the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival. Yesterday they announced the show's headliners as well as the entire lineup, and it's enough to excite any comedy lover.
22 comedians. 18 cities. Drumroll please......
Two comedians I frequently rave about, Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer, will headline!! The rest of the lineup is not too shabby either, with plenty of comedy stars taking the stage to tell their best jokes. Some notable names are Jay Pharaoh (SNL), John Mulaney, Nick Kroll (The Kroll Show/The League), Michael Che (The Daily Show/SNL) and Nikki Glaser (Trainwreck).
I have to figure out how to live-stream this thing. It sounds like it's essentially one giant stand-up festival, and having seen the stand-up of several of these comedians, I'm sure it's going to be good. Also, knowing Funny or Die there will be some weird comedy sketches thrown in there.
The tour kicks off on August 28th. All dates as well as the entire comedy lineup can be found here. I might just have to get a ticket.
