MANCHESTER, TN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment announced the comedy lineup for this year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The festival will welcome some of the most hilarious personalities working today, including Conan O'Brien, who not only will be performing in the Comedy Theatre, but will also be MCing the What Stage on Friday and Saturday.
Also confirmed to perform in the Comedy Theatre are Margaret Cho, Aziz Ansari, Greg Giraldo, Bo Burnham, Doug Benson, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, John Roberts and Jeff Ross who will be roasting the festival. More comedians will be confirmed soon. Now considered an essential play for any comic, Bonnaroo is widely considered synonymous with the best in comedy as well as the best in music.
Over seven years, Bonnaroo has grown to become an unrivaled destination for the best comedy talent in the country. As a natural extension of their creative and clever programming, for the first time ever, in partnership with U.S. Cellular, festival organizers have created the Bonnaroo College Comedy Tour. The tour will feature Bonnaroo alumni acts including Amy Schumer, Pete Holmes and Kumail Nanjiani, and is set to hit college campuses in April and May. The tour and subsequent Bonnaroo Comedy events will continue to cement Bonnaroo as one of the premier comedy brands.
In addition to the Comedy Theatre, Bonnaroo 2010 will feature over 125 music acts. Notable artists include Dave Matthews band, Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z, as well as recently added bands Ween, Galactic, Umphrey's McGee, Brandi Carlisle and The Gossip. Fuse, Madison Square Garden's national music network, will be reporting live from Bonnaroo to provide fans with a front row seat to this summer's hottest festival.
