Bridgetown Comedy Festival Announces 2014 Lineup

bridgetown

A list of locals accepted to the Bridgetown Comedy Festival started to leak last month, but yesterday the fest unveiled the rest of the lineup. Or most of it, anyway—there's a good chance a few more big names will be added to the list before the six-year-old fest, which this year runs May 8-11.

There are more than 100 performers new to Bridgetown, including Community creator Dan Harmon. Other promising names include Sean Patton, Hari Kondabolu, Myq Kaplan (who was great last year), Janine Brito and Aparna Nancherla. Those last two super talented women killed it as writers on Totally Biased—speaking of that show, go read our Q&A with comedian W. Kamau Bell—so keep your eye on them. On the whole, it's a solid slate, making up for the lack of marquee names with lots of mid-tier comics who deserve a bigger spotlight.

For the full list, head to Bridgetown's website, which has had some trouble handling all the traffic since the announcement.
