Along with already announced performances by Aziz Ansari at TPAC and Dick Gregory at Zanies, Wild West Comedy Fest has put together a line-up that is, in a word, bonkers: Bill Burr, Marc Maron, Demetri Martin, Ralphie May, The Office's B.J. Novak, Nick Swardson, Aisha Tyler and Dennis Miller are just a few of the major performers that will perform at venues that also include Ryman Auditorium and Third Man Records.
What is perhaps most exciting, assuming you're not a Dennis Miller Live super-fan, is the news that Chris Hardwick will bring @Midnight to the festival for two live episodes, shot in TPAC's James K. Polk Theater. The show, which combines social media nerdery with the tried-and-true format of comedian game show panels, pits three comedians against each other in increasingly silly games, based in current events and social media.
Tickets go on sale today for individual shows, with VIP packages going on sale next week. Tickets, as well as a full line-up of performers, can be found on the festival's website.
