Moontower Adds More Big Names
From Portlandia to popular podcasts: Moontower Festival adds more big names to 2014 lineup
The Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival has added even more big names to the already star studded lineup.
Just added to the schedule of comedians is Fred Armisen, Saturday Night Live alum and co-creator of IFC's hit show, Portlandia. Armisen will also be appearing during SXSW Comedy in March with his Portlandia counterpart Carrie Brownstein, but he'll be joined by another guest when he returns for Moontower in April. Ian Rubbish (formerly of the classic British punk band Ian Rubbish and the Bizarros) is set to take part in Moontower alongside Armisen.
Also added to the list is Marc Maron, who was a fixture at last year's Moontower Fest and will make his grand return to the Paramount Theatre. Maron recorded his hit podcast series, WTF with Marc Maron, twice last year in Austin, first during SXSW and again during Moontower. Maron is also coming off the recent success of his own IFC series, Maron.
Both Maron and Armisen are welcome additions to the year's impressive lineup, which includes Hannibal Buress, Maria Bamford, Demetri Martin, the Kids in the Hall sketch comedy gang, Dennis Miller and many more. Moontower also estimates that there are around 50 early bird Fan Badges still available at discounted prices. And due to crazy demand, Aziz Ansari will perform a third show on April 19 the week before Moontower, so grab those tickets before they also disappear.
Moontower Comedy Festival will take place from April 23 - 26.
