Your favorite improv all-stars are taking the stage together at EW PopFest for an unbeatable hour of laughs, hosted by none other than Matt Besser, the co-founder of the legendary Upright Citizens Brigade sketch comedy troupe.

The talented lineup of D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), Neil Casey (Inside Amy Schumer), Colton Dunn (Superstore), Neil Flynn (The Middle), John Gemberling (Broad City), Mary Holland (Blunt Talk), Brian Huskey (People of Earth), Kate Lambert (Teachers), Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black), Adam Pally (Happy Endings), Paul Rust (Love), and Matt Walsh (Veep) will be riffing off of each other on Sunday, Oct. 30, and showing how the best in the business nail the tricky art of unscripted comedy.

They will join a stacked lineup of actors, artists, and more at Entertainment Weekly’s two-day pop culture extravaganza. Additional PopFest programming will include cast members from Grey’s Anatomy, Supernatural, Happy Endings, and all four superhero shows on the CW (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow), as well as Gilmore Girls creator/executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino. Jennifer Aniston will appear with her Office Christmas Party cast mates, Eddie Redmayne will conjure up a sneak peak of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and PopFest will kick off with an advance screening of Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

EW PopFest will take place at The Reef in Downtown Los Angeles from Oct. 29-30. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to
