Save some laughs: Moontower Comedy Festival just added more funny folks to its 2020 lineup.
New to the lineup are "Saturday Night Live" star Chris Redd, "The Daily Show" correspondent Dulcé Sloan and "Sunnyside" star (and Austin360 favorite) Joel Kim Booster. Also announced Thursday: Andy Kindler, Corinne Fisher, Erica Rhodes, Matt Braunger, Rhea Butcher, Sarah Tollemache, Stavros Halkias, Dan Van Kirk, Joe DeRosa, Avery Pearson, Tom Segura (performing a show entirely in Spanish at Cap City Comedy Club) and Shane Gillis (who was fired from "Saturday Night Live" last year — almost immediately after the show announced his hiring — when videos of bigoted comments he had made surfaced).
The festival also announced a slate of podcasts and broadcasts coming to its stages this year, including "Kill Tony" with Tony Hinchcliffe and Brian Redban; "Relatively Sane" with Jessica Kirson; "The 500" with Josh Adam Meyers and special guest Big Jay Oakerson; SiriusXM’s "The Bonfire" with Dan Soder and Big Jay Oakerson; "Tuesdays with Stories" with Joe List and Mark Normand; "Vadge" with Adrienne Iapalucci and Sarah Tollemache; "You Know What Dude" with Robert Kelly; "Without a Country" with Corrine Fisher and Joe Derosa; and "Dumb People Town" with The Sklar Brothers and Dan Van Kirk.
This year’s Moontower Comedy Fest is scheduled for April 22-25. See the full lineup and buy badges at austintheatre.org/moontower-comedy.
