TBS has announced a list of 30 comedy acts who will perform inside the network’s special LOL Lounge comedy club inside Caesar’s Palace during The Comedy Festival (Nov. 20-22). Did I mention that these nightly shows will be free? Did I also mention that you don’t even necessarily need to be in Las Vegas to see them? I believe I just did. Details, please.
LOL Lounge shows begin each night at 6:30 p.m. Pacific (9:30 p.m. Eastern), and thecomedyfestival.com online will feature four different video streams: 1) The LOL Lounge, 2) Backstage footage with the comedians, 3) The Web Show with Ian Bagg and Janet Varney, webcasting from the casino floor and offering interactive online chat, and 4) Greatest Hits from past Vegas fests.
The LOL Lounge acts? Jeff Garcia hosts Thursday, Pete Correale hosts Friday and Tammy Pescatelli hosts Saturday. Also on the lineups: Ian Bagg, Matt Braunger, Whitney Cummings, Jim David, Dana Eagle, Bret Ernst, Kirk Fox, Don Friesen, Ron G., Eddie Gossling, Brian Haner, Robert Hawkins, Gayla Johnson, Jesse Joyce, Kristen Key, Simon King, Veronica Mosey, Tim O’Rourke, Karen Rontowski, Carl Rimi, Ken Rogerson, Malik S., Dwight Slade, Paul Varghese, Laz Viciedo, Johnny Walker, and TastiSkank.
