Bill Burr, Aziz Ansari headline Nashville’s first annual Wild West Comedy Festival

Wild West Comedy FestivalThe “Music City” is about to get a whole lot funnier. Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Productions and Outback Concerts present the first annual Wild West Comedy Festival in Nashville, TN. The four-day weekend May festival will feature an impressive line-up of stand-up comedians. Aziz Ansari, Bill Burr, Rodney Carrington, Dennis Miller, and BJ Novak are just a few of the names that will perform in the city’s iconic venues, including the Ryman Auditorium and the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.

Zanies Nashville Comedy Club will host the likes of Steve Byrne, Rob Schneider, and the legendary Dick Gregory. If that wasn’t enough, Chris Hardwick will bring his hit late-night faux game show @midnight to festival for a night of hashtags and Instagram absurdity. Marc Maron will also do a live WTF episode with Vince Vaughn. The Wild West Comedy Festival is not the Wedding Crashers star’s first rodeo in comedy.

He produced and hosted the concert film/documentary Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy: 30 Days & 30 Nights, Hollywood to the Heartland, which followed comedians Ahmed Ahmed, John Caparulo, Bret Ernst, and Sebastian Maniscalco on the road. He also produces Steve Byrne’s TBS sitcom Sullivan & Son.

The festival runs from May 15-18. Tickets and VIP packages are now available at
