Comedy Central has planned to put more stand-up comedy on their network in recent months. Although we lost Comedy Central Presents, we have gained The Half Hour, TJ Miller’s Mash Up, another season of John Oliver’s stand-up show, and several one-hour specials from some of our favorite comedians (did you check out Jo Koy’s recent special? Finish reading this then go do that). Now Comedy Central is teaming up with the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival to tape an original one-hour compilation stand-up special.

Bonnaroo’s Comedy Theatre has always been a fun stop at the festival since its debut in 2004. They have featured amazing comedians and this year is no exception. This year’s line-up includes:

-Aziz Ansari
-Steven Wright
-Marc Maron
-Brian Posehn
-Reggie Watts
-Judah Friedlander
-Rhys Darby
-Colin Hay
-Garfunkel & Oats
-Amy Schumer
-Pete Holmes
-Rory Scovel
-Mike O’Connell
-Ali Wong
-Kyle Kinane

If you’re near Manchester, TN between June 7 – 10, check out the show info! Otherwise, stay tuned this summer for the special on Comedy Central!

    Good line-up. So happy to see Marc Maron on there. He’s come so far with his podcast, and it’s kind of ironic that he’s finally achieved his large-scale success from this roundabout way of podcasting. Recent episode 269 with David Cross is pretty amazing 

  • Man Wall

    That’s a great lineup. Amy Schumer and Aziz have been killing it.
