If you’ve listened to any Jack Black interviews in the past few months, you’ll know he’s been talking about planning a comedy music festival in California. He’s finally made it official and well it’s not what he originally planned on it being, there are several great acts involved. First of all Tenacious D is headlining. You’ve also got Triumph the Insult Dog, Garfunkel and Oates, and the Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are bringing back the Mr. Show experience.
I know what you’re thinking. That’s cool, but what does this have to do with Adult Swim? Well, several of the acts are people you know from Adult Swim shows. First of all, half of the headliners have been on Tim and Eric. (Including Tim and Eric themselves. You’ve also got Neil Hamburger, Will Forte, and Zach Galifianakis.) And Megan Mullally, the Chief from Children’s Hospital is bringing her band Nancy and Beth to the festival.
Then you’ve got my personal favorite–The Mighty Boosh will be reuniting for one of the only US shows they’ve attempted, which I was kind of disappointed when Adult Swim picked the show up that they didn’t do a US tour so for anybody like me that really wanted to see them and is willing to head out to Cali and pay $99–there you go!
Anyways, the festival takes place on October 19th at the Santa Monica Pier in California and tickets can be purchased starting June 14th here for $99 or $250 for VIP. Also they will be available through Ticketmaster. And while you’re on the site, check out some of the other comedians who’ll be at the festival.
