Moontower Just For Laughs Austin adds Sarah Silverman, cast of 'Barry' and more
Moontower Just for Laughs Austin had already announced big comedy attractions coming for its spring event: Marc Maron, Michelle Buteau and the podcast "The Bald and the Beautiful" with Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamo to name a few.
On Thursday, the comedy festival announced new headliners added to the lineup. Sarah Silverman, Neal Brennan, Tim Dillon and Matteo Lane will head to Austin for the event, April 13-24.
Silverman will close out the fest with her "Sarah Silverman & Friends" show at ACL Live. Brennan will present a four-night run of his show "Neal Brennan: Unacceptable." Dillon will appear in a set at the Paramount Theatre, and Lane will perform at Stateside at the Paramount.
In addition to those names, Showtime will screen a sneak peek of its new series "I Love That For You," starring Vanessa Bayer, Molly Shannon and Jenifer Lewis, at Stateside. HBO will also give fest-goers a taste of "Barry" Season 3 and bring together a panel including cast members Henry Winkler, Sarah Goldberg, Anthony Carrigan and Stephen Root.
