Moontower set out in 2012 to establish itself as one of the top comedy festivals in the country with some of the nation's best stand-up, sketch and improv comics, both established and up-and-coming. And, this year's lineup is continuing to tap your funny bone with headliners like Dana Carvey, Jim Gaffigan, Bill Hader, Bill Burr, Jim Norton, Amy Schumer and Anthony Jeselnik. Also included in this year's lineup are Andy Kindler, Brendon Walsh, Kyle Kinane, Rory Scovel, James Adomian, Lucas Brothers, Marc Maron, Maria Bamford, and many more. The full lineup will be coming your way shortly.
Last year's four-day fest brought in an estimated 20,000 comedy fans, and this year the fest made some venue changes to give audiences the most laughs for your buck. With the exception of only The Scottish Rite and Cap City Comedy Club, all 10 venues are within a five-block radius, allowing you to better bounce between sets and catch all your must-sees. And, SiriusXM's Raw Dog Comedy channel will broadcast live from the festival.
Moontower badges are on sale now, including the newly introduced Ace Badge, which is a perfect middle of the road badge. It gives you access to all non-single-ticketed events, but also comes with guaranteed entry and prime seating at four headliner shows of your choice at the Paramount. Also available are the Fan and VIP Badges, all of which can be purchased on the Moontower site. A limited number of single tickets are on sale now for Jim Gaffigan and Bill Burr shows. Single show tickets for the remainder of performances at the Paramount Theatre and Cap City Comedy Club go on sale Tuesday, February 19th.
"The response to our inaugural festival was more than we could have hoped for and we couldn't be more excited about this year's lineup," said Jim Ritts, Executive Director of the Paramount Theatre presenters of Moontower. "From hilarious up-and-comers to established names, the program is guaranteed have something for everyone."
