Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, more to headline inaugural Comedy Central festival
Comedy fans are getting their very own festival this summer: Comedy Central just announced that they’re launching Colossal Clusterfest, a three-day event headlined by comics like Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin Hart, this coming June in San Francisco.
According to a press release, the fest “is a celebration of comedy in all its forms” and will include stand-up and sketch performances, live podcast recordings, Q&As, and musical performances. The network is partnering with Superfly, which puts on Bonnaroo, and Outside Lands co-producer Another Planet, for the event and will air a 90-minute live special, hosted by @midnight‘s Chris Hardwick, straight from the premises on its final day.
Along with Seinfeld and Hart, the lineup also includes Bill Burr, Sarah Silverman & Friends, Ice Cube, Tegan and Sara, Chromeo, Hannibal Buress, Tig Notaro, Fred Armisen, Pete Davidson, and Reggie Watts.
In addition to live performances, the fest will feature three interactive attractions tailored to specific shows: One will spotlight South Park through life-size models of the series’ most memorable scenes, another will bring It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Paddy’s Pub to life, and the third will include a recreation of the Seinfeld apartment. All three will also include thematic food pairings.
The festival takes place June 2-4 at San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Tickets go on sale here March 2 at 10 a.m. PT. See the full lineup below.
