With three months left until festival kick-off, Fun Fun Fun Fest has revealed its comedy artists and daily lineup. In addition, the fest has released single-day tickets for the homegrown event at Auditoriums Shores, November 6-8.
Fun Fun Fun Fest's 10th anniversary comes with a special theme, "the science of fun." Famed science guy Bill Nye announced the music lineup earlier this year, which features headliners Wu-Tang Clan, D'Angelo and The Vanguard, Venom, Coheed and Cambria, CHVRCHES, and Jane's Addiction.
The just-released comedy lineup reflects the fun, scientific motif. In addition to top comedic acts such as Tig Notaro, Doug Benson, Andrew W.K., Eric Andre, Todd Barry, Jonah Ray and Kurt Braunohler, the lineup incorporates unconventional appearances: Big Freedia will give twerking lessons, while GZA will dissect the science of hip-hop.
