“After last year’s spectacular success with fans, talent and the entire comedy community, we’d have to be insane to not return for another round,” said Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central, in media release. “While we are concerned anything better than last year might blow Bay Area minds into oblivion, we are prepared to take that chance.”

“Last year’s Clusterfest exceeded our expectations and we’re excited to build off that success, reimagining the live comedy experience,” added Jonathan Mayers, co-founder of Superfly Productions.  “If timing is everything, we’re exactly where we need to be as we all need to laugh now more than ever.”

In addition to stand-up and sketch comedy, live podcast recordings and musical performances, Clusterfest attendees will be invited to step into the worlds of their favorite television shows with interactive attractions from “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” “South Park,” “Double Dare” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

Among the headliners, the Clusterfest appearance by The Lonely Island marks their first-ever live concert performance. The Lonely Island is made up of Berkeley natives Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.

Clusterfest has also teamed up once again with SF Sketchfest as a programming partner for a select number of comedic performances.
