Last year’s Outside Lands comedy tent at the Barbary was a sanctuary for vaguely introvert baiting, borderline shut-in types trying to find refuge away from the fields of flower crowns and guys who thought that wearing a tank top to Golden Gate Park was a good idea.
OK, maybe I’m projecting a wee bit too much, but seriously, the comedy tent was a nice way to break up the day.
The line-up for this year’s Barbary tent (co-produced with SF Sketchfest) was announced last week, featuring (among others) Tig Notaro, Scott Auckerman, Pete Holmes, Andy Kindler, Jen Kirkman, Rory Scovel, Ron Funches, Camerson Esposito, Hari Konabolu, and Joe Klocek. Along with members of The Daily Show news team (Al Madrigal, Hasan Minhaj, Jordan Klepper – fun fact Jon Stewart’s last day as host of The Daily Show is on August 6), and the Upright Citizens Brigade (Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh) performing their ASSSSCAT improv show with Horatio Sanz and Danielle Schneider.
You can check out the full line-up on the Outside Lands site. This year’s Outside Lands pops off August 7 – 9.
