The biggest Skankfest yet kicks off this Friday and while a preliminary lineup has been announced, no word has yet been released of the shows people can expect to see this weekend. But we’ve got a first look at some of this years big shows and the very first full line up list.
It’s the world’s favorite tattooed, black t-shirt wearing, finger-less gloves loving comedy festival all taking place on four stages at Brooklyn Bazaar. This 3-day comedy party will be a celebration of freedom of expression and all things out of the ordinary.
The first big reveal– the festival will kick off with some pre-gaming on Friday at 3pm with a Podcast Basketball Tournament featuring Legion of Skanks, Cum Town, Punch Drunk Sports and Irish Goodbye at Bridge & Tunnel Park in Long Island City (walking distance from the Creek and the Cave). This is a huge event not to be missed, so if you were planning to arrive late, change your plans.
The teams haven’t been announced but based on the podcasts participating, unless they’re bringing in ringers, you should be seeing Big Jay Oakerson, Luis J. Gomez, Dave Smith, Nick Mullen, Stavros Halkias, Ari Shaffir, Sam Tripoli, Mike Cannon and Mike Feeney hit the court.
Team Skankfest has picked some of their favorite podcasts to represent at Brooklyn Bazaar this weekend. Get ready to be a part of Cum Trown, Danish & ONeill Present The Ellismania Press Conference, Kill Tony, Legion of Skanks (of course), Mean Boys, Punch Drunk, Real Ass Podcast, The Bonfire, The Cumia Show and Tin Foil Hat.

The full schedule will be released tomorrow for the four room, two day comedy acid trip, but while you’re waiting to plan your weekend, this list should get you excited.
