Okay, now here’s something that will get me out to the new Austin360 Amphitheater.

Reclusive standup Dave Chappelle and musical comics Flight of the Conchords are set to co-headline website Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Tour, which kicks off at the venue on August 23.

The 13-date tour covering most geographic areas of the country also features ‘The Daily Show’s” Al Madrigal and Kristen Schaal, Demetri Martin, Hannibal Buress, John Mulaney, Chris D’Elia, Jim Jefferies and a second stage hosted by Brody Stevens. The site promises a full festival experience including street performers, vendors, psychics, freaks, eats and booze although, let’s be honest — most of that stuff is necessary if you want to get comedians to even show up.

Chappelle, the Conchords and John Mulaney on the same stage in Austin — are you kidding me? I guarantee you it will be funnier than the Lumineers.

Tickets are $20-$93 and go on sale Friday at 9 a.m. Find more information at www.funnyordie.com/oddball or austin360amphitheater.com.
