New York’s favorite tatted up comedy festival is back and promising to be better than ever this year. They already announced that they’re taking over a much larger space and headed to Brooklyn for the two day festival, and now we know the incredible list of comedians and shows who will descend on Brooklyn Bazaar for this badass festival. More “comedy party” than “comedy festival”, Skankfest is a celebration of freedom of expression and the positive treatment of performers in the industry! Taking place July 14 and 15th with a kick off party on July 13th, the festival encourages comics to step out on the edge and take chances.
The Skankfest producers have pulled in an absolutely unbeatable list of performers, podcasts and specialty shows, making Skankfest somewhat of a “best of” all festival performers. These are the comics and the shows that we go see when we travel across the country to see a festival, and they’re all together in one venue, over two days. It’s a festival on acid.
Dave Attell, Ron Bennington, Michael Che, Pete Davidson, Tim Dillon, Nikki Glaser, Luis J. Gomez, Tony Hinchcliffe, Krystyna Hutchinson, Sam Jay, Robert Kelly, Mike Lawrence, Bonnie McFarlane, Josh Adam Meyers, Nick Mullen, Mark Normand, Jim Norton, Big Jay Oakerson, Steve Rannazzisi, Brian Redban, Andrew Schulz, Ari Shaffir, Dulce Sloan, Dave Smith, Dan Soder, Jayson Thibault, Sam Tripoli, Rich Vos, Sal Vulcano, Jeremiah Watkins have been announced so far.
The Artie and Anthony Show, the Bonfire, Cumtown, Kill Tony, Legion Of Skanks, Punch Drunk Sports, and Real Ass Podcast will all cast their pods.
And you can count on seeing Big Jay Oakerson’s “What’s Your F$&%ing Deal?!”, The Goddamn Comedy Jam, Ha! The Musical, The Naked Roast with Zac Amico, and The RoastMasters.
