Funny or Die's annual Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival has brought some big-name comedians to Dallas the past few years, and 2015 will even bigger with Amy Schumer and Aziz Ansari headlining the festival when it makes a stop at Gexa Energy Pavilion on October 18.
The Dallas date is the last on the festival's tour, which will hit 18 cities between August 28 and October 18, including Houston on October 16 and Austin on October 17.
Schumer and Ansari will be at every stop on the tour, which will also feature a rotating cast of 20 other comedians, including Anthony Jeselnik, Ashley Barnhill, Bridget Everett, Dave Attell, Jay Pharoah, Jeff Ross, Jim Norton, John Mulaney, Michael Che, Nick Kroll, Nick Thune, Nikki Glaser, Rachel Feinstein, Rory Scovel, Sebastian Maniscalco, Tim Minchin, T.J. Miller and Todd Barry.
Schumer and Ansari are natural picks for headliners, as they are two of the hottest comedians working today. Schumer is earning much praise for her Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer and for her upcoming film Trainwreck, while Ansari followed up the end of Parks and Recreation with the bestselling book Modern Romance.
The festival also features a second stage hosted by Big Jay Oakerson that will highlight local and emerging comedic talent in each city.
