It’s a funny day today, as the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival announced the comedy lineup for the 2010 festival. This year, the chuckles and guffaws will be provided by:
• Conan O’ Brien (who will also be MCing the “What” stage on Friday/Saturday)
• Margaret Cho
• Aziz Ansari
• Jeffrey Ross (who will roast the festival)
• Greg Giraldo
• Bo Burnham
• Doug Benson
• Nick Kroll
• Paul Scheer
• Rob Huebel
• John Roberts
• Baron Vaughn
• Chelsea Peretti
The comics will provide a respite from the traditionally hot and sweaty outdoor festival weather and will be performing in an “ever-popular, seated, air-conditioned comedy venue,” aptly titled “The Comedy Theatre.” Expect more comics to be added!
Bonnaroo festival organizers have also announced the “Bonnaroo College Comedy Tour,” wherein past comedic Bonnaroo alumni (like Amy Schumer, Pete Holmes, and Kumail Nanjani) will travel across the US visiting local colleges and bringing a couple laughs to the despressing world of the modern US college systems.
More information about Bonnaroo (tickets, dates & times, and musical performers) can be found at Bonnaroo.com. And don’t forget: Conan O’Brien’s going on tour!
