Back in February the folks down at the farm released the official principle lineup for this year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival after months of speculation and anticipation. But one thing was missing: the comedy lineup! After another 2 months of waiting we finally know who will be making us laugh in the tent this year, as well as some recent additions to the musical lineup!
While Bonnaroo is known for its amazing lineup of music year after year, there is another aspect of the festival that many people forget about, and that is the equally as great list of comedians that come through!
I thought it would be difficult for Bonnaroo to top their comedy lineup from last year, which include Margaret Cho, Aziz Ansari, and a very special appearance from Conan O’Brien (who had recently lost his Tonight Show gig and was still waiting on his TBS show to kick off). Since this year is the 10th anniversary of the festival, I expected it to be a good one, and I was right!
Today Bonnaroo officially announced the comedy lineup for this year, and it does not disappoint!
420 Comedy Blaze Hosted by Cheech Marin
Henson Alternative’s Stuffed and Unstrung
The League(Paul Cheer, Nick Kroll, John LaJoie, Stephen Rannazzisi)
The Gregory Brothers
Whew! This is a little bit different from what they usually do, which is have a few big name acts that repeat their sets a few times throughout the weekend. With such an extensive comedy lineup this year, it looks like there will be plenty of opportunities to catch a good standup performance in between all the other great shows going on!
In addition to the comey lineup, Bonnaroo also announced some recent additions to their already stellar musical lineup. These new names add even more diversity and talent to a lineup that already had something for everyone! The lineup additions include:
G Love & The Special Sauce
Shpongle Presents Shpongletron Experience
Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub
Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears
Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens
Bonnaroo is sure to add even more great acts to their lineup as the show approaches, but even if they didn’t add another thing it is sure to be an amazing weekend! Tickets are still available for those who don’t want to miss you, but be sure stay plugged in right here because we will be bringing you all the great action from Tennessee!
Bonnaroo is June 9-12 in Manchester, TN.
