The menu of comedians joining this year’s Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival is enough to satisfy even the heartiest of comedy cravings. It’s already like a smorgasbord at your favorite comedy buffet, including the gravy, dinner rolls and fixins.
And finally, for dessert, you’ve got a three-way of sexy good times delivering the final night of unbelievable funny in the form of Michael Ian Black, Chelsea Peretti and Judah “The World Champion” Friedlander.
Yep, they’re joining the festival as well.
You know Michael Ian Black as one of members of sketch comedy group The State, Stella and Michael & Michael Have Issues. He is the author of My Custom Van and You‘re Not Doing It Right and even some children’s books, (if you can imagine his sick mind writing books for kids). His latest Comedy Central special and CD, Very Famous, was released last year and followed by his aptly-named Black is White tour.
If you even follow comedy at all, you already know who Chelsea Peretti is. She’s been a writer for the best comedy on basic cable, Parks & Recreation, and now Comedy Central’s phenomenal Kroll Show. In 2010 she was one of “Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch” (der) and she made a huge impact on the Moontower crowd last year, so we’re so happy to welcome her back to the big stage this year.
Now that 30 Rock has completed its epic 7 season run, Judah Freidlander is back on the road, spreading his competitive competitive spirit with the country in his tight shirts and monogrammed trucker hats. His unique stand-up persona has appeared on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Burn with Jeff Ross, establishing him as one of the weirdest, funniest guys on the block. He wrote the book How To Beat Up Anybody to help everyone achieve the same level of dangerous beauty he himself has attained as an extra-dark black belt.
