The world's biggest comedy tour returns with a summer show featuring some of the hottest standup acts. The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival 2014, presented by Live Nation and Funny or Die, has an incredible lineup that includes major names like Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, Whitney Cummings and Reggie Watts.

The festival stops at the Austin360 Amphitheater on September 21. Tickets go on sale June 28 at 10 am.

Others on the bill include DJ Trauma, Hannibal Buress, Jeff Ross and Brody Stevens.

"With the Oddball Festival 2014, we are thrilled to expand upon last year's successful tour by offering fans the greatest cast of comedians ever assembled," said Live Nation Comedy president Geof Wills, who is clearly unafraid of hyperbole.

The 2013 inaugural Oddball Comedy Festival, featuring the unlikely return of Dave Chappelle and New Zealand duo Flight of the Conchords, encompassed 15 dates and was the largest outdoor comedy festival produced by Live Nation.

This year's event steps that up to 21 cities, kicking off August 8 in Tampa, Florida. The tour culminates in Texas, with a September 19 stop in Dallas, followed by Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston on September 20 and a September 21 finale at Austin360 Amphitheatre in Austin.

Oddball 2014 will feature two stages, as well as the return of the "Cut Throat Freak Show," a roaming troupe of misfit performers, snacks and drinks.

With Citi being the official credit card, Citi card members have access to presale tickets (which began June 25) through Citi's Private Pass Program. For details, visit Citi Private Pass.

Tickets are available via Live Nation or Funny or Die.
