Music and Comedy Performances
The comedy and music festival will take place from June 1 to June 3. The other lineup in the Superfly and Another Planet Entertainment production include the Lonely Island musical troupe comprising of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone. The trio helped announce the Clusterfest performances in a 3-minute clip that takes viewers on a journey through Samberg's stomach.
"Last year's Clusterfest exceeded our expectations and we're excited to build off that success, re-imagining the live comedy experience. If timing is everything, we're exactly where we need to be as we all need to laugh now more than ever," said Jonathan Mayers, co-founder of Superfly.
The comedians set to perform at the event include David Cross, Maria Bamford, John Early, Kate Berlant, Joel Kim Booster, Desus & Mero, Michael Che, Mike Lawrence, Sam Morril, Drunk History, and Kyle Mooney and Nathan Fielder's Video Treasures. The musical lineup includes the Third Eye Blind, Action Bronson, and Salt-N-Pepa.
Clusterfest offers attendees the opportunity to view stand-up and sketch performances, as well enjoy live podcast recordings. The festival offers an immersive experience with Comedy Central's shows including South Park, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and Double Dare.
Attendees can try their luck at classical carnival games in the style of South Park's County Fair. They also get to enjoy "Beef and Beer" and "Rum Ham" servings from a replica of Paddy's Pub from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump becomes the focus of Jon Stewart's The Daily Show attraction at Clusterfest. Attendees can explore the president's finest tweets, which will include a fully immersive experience and visual installments. Nickelodeon will also bring its classic game Double Dare to the festival, where attendees can race through several challenges.
"After last year's spectacular success with fans, talent and the entire comedy community, we'd have to be insane to not return for another round. While we are concerned anything better than last year might blow Bay Area minds into oblivion, we are prepared to take that chance," Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central, said.
Tickets for Clusterfest are now available for purchase at the festival's official website. Layaway payments are now available for all ticket types.
