If you’re into seeing live comedy and happen to be in the Hartford, Connecticut area this weekend, you are in for a big treat. Funny Or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival will feature several of the biggest names in standup this Saturday night. The lineup includes Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari, Hannibal Buress, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, and several more.
The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival is a 21 city tour that runs throughout the entire country. The festival mixes up the comedy lineup every date, there are roughly 25 comedians who take the mega-amphitheater stage on alternating nights. Besides the comics listed above, several other brand name comedians have participated in the tour on various nights. Imagine getting the opportunity to see a combination of any of these stellar comedians: Bill Burr, Brent Morin, Chris D’Elia, Chris Hardwick, Dave Attell, Demetri Martin, DJ Trauma, Hannibal Buress, Jeff Ross, Jermaine Fowler, Jim Gaffigan, Jim Jefferies, Julian McCullough, Louis C.K., Marc Maron, Michael Che, Moshe Kasher, Nate Bargatze, Reggie Watts, Ron Funches, Whitney Cummings.
Last year Dave Chappelle made headlines when he refused to continue to entertain a loud heckling crowd. Instead of moving along with his routine, he sat in the middle of the stage and refused to tell anymore jokes until his time was officially up.
