Moontower Comedy 2018: Still More Headliners

Tig Notaro, Jo Koy, Nikki Glaser, David Cross join the party

Tig Notaro

We've been getting a steady stream of acts for the seventh Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival since October, with more than 40 names dropped to date. Now comes the final headliners, and they include: Tig Notaro, Jo Koy, Nikki Glaser, and An Evening for the Comedy Resistance, featuring David Cross.

Joining previously announced headliners at the Paramount Theatre Tiffany Haddish, "Weird Al" Yankovic, and Mike Birbiglia, will be the phenomenal Tig Notaro, whose Amazon series One Mississippi was regrettably canceled; Jo Koy, who just launched his "Break the Mold" tour; and An Evening for the Comedy Resistance, featuring David "Make America Great Again" Cross and friends.

Previously announced headliners at Stateside include Janeane Garofalo, Ryan Hamilton, Colin Quinn, Ali Siddiq, and Preacher Lawson. Now, you can also look to that stage for a set by Nikki Glaser and a live podcast of Shmanners with Travis and Teresa McElroy.

Festival badges for the 2018 Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival are already on sale. For more information, visit the Moontower website.
