Coming off a successful debut in 2017, Comedy Central’s Clusterfest is returning for its second year in San Francisco and bringing the biggest names in comedy. This year’s event, running from June 1-3 at Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, will feature headlining spots from former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and current host Trevor Noah, as well as Amy Schumer and the first ever live concert from Andy Samberg’s The Lonely Island.
The three-day festival also includes an equally entertaining selection of musical artists from Salt-N-Pepa and Third Eye Blind, plus musician/comedians like Reggie Watts, Action Bronson, and Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments.
“After last year’s spectacular success with fans, talent and the entire comedy community, we’d have to be insane to not return for another round,” said Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central in a release. Last year the Collosal Clusterfest debuted with headliner Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, and Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson from Broad City. “While we are concerned anything better than last year might blow Bay Area minds into oblivion, we are prepared to take that chance.”
Other comedians slated to perform this year include Tiffany Haddish, Jim Jefferies, David Cross, Michael Che, Roy Wood Jr., and Maria Bamford.
“Last year’s Clusterfest exceeded our expectations and we’re excited to build off that success, reimagining the live comedy experience,” said Jonathan Mayers, co-founder of Superfly in a release. “If timing is everything, we’re exactly where we need to be as we all need to laugh now more than ever.”
In addition to live performances, Clusterfest attendees will step into the worlds of their favorite television shows with interactive attractions from Comedy Central, FX, and Nickelodeon television shows. Fans can visit the South Park County Fair where they can enter the world of South Park to join their favorite character for classic carnival games with a twist.
The Daily Show will present their Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library and can race through iconic challenges from Nickelodeon’s beloved series Double Dare. Returning this year will also be Paddy’s Pub from FX hit It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, where the fest will be serving thematic food and drink such as “Beef and Beer” and “Rum Ham” and hosting interactive programming unique to the show, such as Flipadelphia and pub trivia.
