Comedy and music have gone hand-in-hand for years, and the two worlds regularly intersect in television, film and more. Now, Comedy Central will have the two meet at the proverbial crossroads.
The channel, which turns 25 years old on June 1st, will celebrate to landmark with its own festival: Colossal Clusterfest. Tagged as a “comedy music mashup of festival proportions,” the event will take place at San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on June 2nd-4th. Headlined by Jerry Seinfeld, comedians and musicians such as Vince Staples, Kevin Hart, Ice Cube, Lil Dicky, Hannibal Buress, Jidenna, Open Mike Eagle, and many more. Attendees will also be able to “explore the worlds” of sit-coms like South Park, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Seinfeld.
The Clusterfest is putting on for a good cause as well: it will be partnering with several local Bay Area non-profits, including Downtown Streets Team, Larkin Street Youth and the Tenderloin Museum, and a portion of all festival ticket sales will be donated to each organization to “help take their mission further in making a difference in the San Francisco community.”
Tickets, which start at $199.50, will be available March 2nd.
