The Woodstock of Comedy? The Bonnaroo of Laughs? One of the first and definitely the biggest comedy festival of it’s type is set for Saturday, October 19th at Santa Monica Pier. Tenacious D’s Jack Black and Kyle Gass have assembled the greatest who’s-who of comedy teams, troupes, duos and heavyweights with FESTIVAL SUPREME.
Let me know if you’ve heard of any of these acts: Tim and Eric / The Mr. Show Experience / The Mighty Boosh / Sarah Silverman / Zach Galifianakis / Adam Sandler / The Gregory Brothers / Tig Notaro / Hannibal Buress / Eric Idle / Fred Armisen / Princess (Maya Rudolph & Gretchen Lieberum) / Will Forte / Demetri Martin / Dynasty Handbag / Reggie Watts / Beardyman / Garfunkel & Oates / Craig Robinson and the Nasty Delicious / Triumph the Insult Comic Dog / Neil Hamburger Band / The Abe Lincoln Story / Nancy and Beth (Megan Mullaly and Stephanie Hunt) / and of course – Tenacious D
I think the only thing missing is a full Monty Python reunion and maybe MTV’s The State.
Ticket Pre-Sale is this Wednesday, June 12th at 10am here; the password is SUPREME
