Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari to Headline Funny or Die’s 2014 Oddball Festival

Website Funny or Die is bringing back its in-real-life Oddball comedy festival for a second year, produced with Live Nation Entertainment, with a lineup of comedians that includes Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari, Louis C.K. and Sarah Silverman.

The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival will run a total of 21 dates, kicking off Aug. 8 in Tampa, Fla., and concluding Sept. 21 at the Austin360 Amphitheatre in Texas.

The lineup of performers will vary by city, according to Funny or Die. The more than two dozen comedians slated to appear include Bill Burr, Brent Morin, Chris Hardwick, Dave Attell, Demetri Martin, DJ Trauma, Hannibal Buress, Jeff Ross, Jermaine Fowler, Jerrod Carmichael, Jim Gaffigan, Jim Jefferies, Julian McCullough, Marc Maron, Michael Che, Moshe Kasher, Nate Bargatze, Reggie Watts, Ron Funches, Rory Scovel, Sarah Silverman and Whitney Cummings.

Last year’s inaugural Oddball Comedy Festival — the largest outdoor comedy festival ever produced by Live Nation — was headlined by Dave Chappelle, who returned to the standup stage, and by New Zealand duo Flight of the Conchords.

Again this year, Oddball 2014 will include two stages — with the second stage hosted by Brody Stevens — and the return of the Cut Throat Freak Show, a roaming troupe of misfit performers.

Ticket prices for the fest range from $25 to $125, varying by venue. Tix will go on sale to the general public Saturday, June 28, at 10 a.m. on the websites of Live Nation and Funny or Die. The full list of 2014 tour dates is available at oddballfest.com.

Sponsors of the Oddball fest include Redd’s Apple Ale, a sponsorship sold by Turner Broadcasting System, which handles ad sales on behalf of Funny Or Die.

Funny or Die’s founders are Gary Sanchez Productions — Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy — CAA and Michael Kvamme. Judd Apatow is also a principal partner in the company.
