Dec 05, 2017
Ryan Hamilton and his teeth will be playing Moontower 2018.

The seventh annual Moontower Comedy Festival announced Tuesday a mess of additional comics to the 2018 lineup. Further additions to the lineup will be announced in the months ahead, including the Moontower Podcast Series.

Look for Ryan Hamilton at Stateside (and check out his Netflix special, “Happy Face”). 

Also at Stateside is Preacher Lawson, a finalist on “America’s Got Talent 2017. “

Fan favorite Colin Quinn also returns to perform his new show “One in Every Crowd,” as well as Moontower alum Janeane Garofalo, who recently reprised her role as Beth in the Netflix series “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later.”

In the smaller rooms, check out Ali Siddiq, Kevin Barnett, and Kurt Braunohler, as well as newer talent such as SNL writers Sam Jay and Julio Torres.

Moontower favorites such as Jackie Kashian, Andy Kindler, Emily Heller, The Sklar Brothers, Jon Rudnitsky, Kurt Metzger, Tom Rhodes, Judah Friedlander and the Goddamn Comedy Jam will also return for the 2018 festival.

 These latest additions join the three previously announced Paramount headlining comics, including “Weird Al” Yankovic, who will be performing as part of his “The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour” – a stripped-down, no-frills production along with opener and previous Moontower performer Emo Philips; comedian, actor, and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia; and comedian and actor Tiffany Haddish.
