Top 3 Line-ups in Recorded Human History

3. Ford’s assembly line – December 1, 1913. Henry Ford lined up cars to enable the mass production of an automobile and reduced the time it took to build a car from more than 12 hours to just 35 seconds! More than seventy people were mutilated in the machinery and these early cars were recalled but the opening night party had penny candies.

2. Bathroom line-up at Woodstock – August 15, 1969. Held in the Catskills in Bethel, New York, Woodstock featured 32 acts, 400,000 young people, and a single bathroom in the guest house on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm. Many attendees were in line for the entire three day festival and several died of dehydration. Groovy, man!

1. Moontower’s 2015 Lineup – January 20, 2015. The Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival lineup for April of this year features Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, Wanda Sykes, Pete Holmes, John Mulaney, Maria Bamford, Andy Kindler, Todd Barry and many more! Tickets are on sale now!
