Lineup & Tour Dates Revealed for its 2014 Oddball Tour
Online comedy trailblazer, Funny or Die, has just announced the lineup for its second annual Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, along with where and when it’ll be stopping. The festival will travel to 21 cities throughout the U.S. with some of the current biggest names in standup taking the stage, although the lineup will vary by venue. The tour kicks off at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater in Tampa on August 8. From there, it will head north through North Carolina and Georgia and eventually into the Northeast—making stops in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia, New York and Connecticut. The tour will stop in Clarkston, MI, on August 29 and then move on Pennsylvania and Illinois, before finally arriving on the West Coast to take over the White River Amphitheatre in Seattle on September 5. It’ll then move on to Salt Lake City and Denver, before settling into a run through California, featuring a two-night stint at the Verizon Amphitheater in Irvine on September 13 and 14. The festival will finish up with a leg through Texas, stopping in Dallas on September 19, Houston on September 20, and Austin on September 21.
Launching just last year, the “Oddball Tour” is a mix of carnival atmosphere and comedy showcase, featuring food, booze, a freakshow, roaming performers, and two stages for standup. This year’s performers include Louis CK, Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari, Marc Maron, Bill Burrr, Chris Hardwick, Dave Attell, Sarah Silverman and many more.
