Oddball's Out

If you mourn the loss of Comedy Central’s Chappelle's Show and still hold onto the hope that HBO’s Flight of the Conchords will return for a third season, we have some good news. While these long-lost laugh makers may not be making a comeback on your favorite cable comedies, they are making their way back to the big stage for the ultimate showcase of stand-up: The Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival. Like a Woodstock of comedy, Oddball will feature headlining acts Dave Chappelle and Conchords Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, as well as other famed funny-men including Jeff Ross, Chris D’Elia, Hannibal Buress, Jim Jeffries, and Brody Stevens.

Hosted by Comedy Central and Funny or Die, this event will offer two stages plus plenty of food, vendors, booze, and more. The Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival concludes its 15-city tour on Sunday, September 22, starting at 5 p.m. at Ak-Chin Pavillion, 2121 North 83rd Avenue.
