Moontower Just for Laughs just made its lineup of comedy and comedy-adjacent personalities even more irresistible. The two-week festival announced the addition of Leslie Jones, Jenny Slate, Jay Pharoah, Samantha Bee, Ziwe, Monét X Change, Megan Stalter, Patti Harrison, Sarah Sherman, Randy Feltface, and others.

These fine, funny folk are added to a lineup that already includes Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers, Vir Das, Chelcie Lynn, Ben Schwartz, and a cavalcade of others. Add to that more than a dozen podcast tapings and you have a fortnight of funny.

Alliteration aside, you can buy a badge or tickets to the festival or individual shows right now. Wait at your own risk.
