Organizers of the 2015 Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival have announced the initial lineup for the fourth annual event, playing April 22-25 at more than half a dozen downtown venues and the Cap City Comedy Club.
Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, Marc Maron, Wanda Sykes, John Mulaney, Tim Minchin, T.J. Miller and Pete Holmes will join previously announced headliner (and Blue Collar comic) Ron White in this year’s headlining spots.
White will be the sole performer on opening night, playing the Paramount Theatre in a special performance of “Texas Toasted” for badgeholders only (and all badge holders are guaranteed entry). Bamford, meanwhile, will appear Thursday-Saturday at the Stateside hosting a curated show with different guests each night.
Early-bird badges, priced at $99 (Fan), $249 (Ace) and $499 (VIP), are available now at moontowercomedyfestival.com, the Paramount Theatre box office, or by calling 512-474-1221. At 5 p.m. Friday, badge prices increase to $129, $319 and $599. Single tickets to Moontower headliner performances at the Paramount Theatre and Cap City Comedy Club will go on sale at a later date.

From the Moontower press release:
The FAN badge is your general weekend pass to the Festival, but does not guarantee entry to headliner shows at the Paramount (with the exception of Ron White) and Cap City. The ACE badge—your prime middle-of-the-road credential—gives you access to all non-single-ticketed shows and comes with guaranteed entry and great seating at four headliner shows of your choice at the Paramount, plus Ron White’s kickoff show. And the VIP badge gets you priority access to all Festival performances with plenty of additional perks. For a complete rundown of each badge level and to purchase them as well as the special add-on packages for Ron White’s Texas Toasted, visit the official Festival site at moontowercomedyfestival.com.
