Funny or Die made quite the impression with their first venture into touring festivals last year with their Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival. For an entire nationwide tour, they managed to get both Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords to take the stage at the very same show. They also had some of your current favorite comedians join in, including Kristen Schaal, Hannibal Buress, Brody Stevens, Jeff Ross, and more to play one of the more massive comedy shows in recent memory. As far as live comedy is concerned, it takes this kind of epic line-up to sell out amphitheaters and arenas.
This year, Oddball is swinging for the fences again with a line-up includes Louis C.K., Dave Attell, Sarah Silverman, our very own fearless leader Chris Hardwick, Hannibal Buress, Reggie Watts, Marc Maron, and others. The “oddity” portion of the festival will again be filled by the Cut Throat Freak Show.
Who you will see will depend on which stop of Oddball you’re planning on attending. Here are the acts slated (so far) to play Oddball, in alphabetical order:
