Couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this announcement! This show is gonna be huge!!!
Festival Supreme, the newly-birthed stand-up comedy festival created by Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, is bringing some of the biggest names in comedy to the Santa Monica Pier, October 19th.
The self-proclaimed “Greatest Band in the World” has invited 25 of the best comedians around today to this one-day event. The list is so impressive, I’m going to give you the entire list:
Tim & Eric, The Mr. Show Experience, The Mighty Boosh, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, Adam Sandler, The Gregory Brothers, Tig Notaro, Hannibal Buress, Eric Idle (Yes, THE Eric Idle), Fred Armisen, Princess, Will Forte, Demetri Martin, Dynasty Handbag, Reggie Watts, Beardyman, Craig Robinson & The Nasty Delicious, Triumph the Insult Dog, Garfunkel & Oates, Neil Hamburger Band, The Abe Lincoln Story, Nancy & Beth, and of course, Tenacious D.

When asked by the NY Times why they decided to put the work in on a new festival they said:
“No one’s ever done a really great comedy festival in L.A., which is really weird, because, no offense to New York, they’re all here,” Mr. Black said. “They’re all just sitting here working and waiting for a festival to happen. We’re like the guys who invented the ShamWow. We’re not talking rocket science. We’re just like, ‘How come there’s no ShamWow?’ Now the ShamWow’s here and we’re geniuses.”
