Seinfeld, DeGeneres, Cook included in lineup

Assuming control of Las Vegas’ Comedy Festival from HBO, TBS has announced a 2008 lineup that will include Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Dane Cook, Katt Williams, Tracy Morgan and Jeff Dunham.

TBS is now listed alongside AEG Live as a co-producer of the event, which takes place Nov. 20-22 at Caesars Palace and has been renamed “Very Funny” Festival: The Comedy Festival.
