Bonnaroo’s “Comedy Sweet” for 2009 fest

Bonnaroo announced its comedy lineup for the 2009 music festival in Tennessee, and this year, it's getting some corporate help from Butterfinger, which is sponsoring "The Comedy Sweet." Get it? Anyrockytops.

The lineup includes:

Jimmy Fallon
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Presents Bonnapoo 2009
An Evening (or Afternoon) with The Daily Show featuring John Oliver & Rob Riggle
Michael Ian Black & Michael Showalter
Aziz Ansari
Kristen Schaal
Arj Barker
Todd Barry
Rory Albanese
Wayne Federman
Nick Thune
Nick Kroll
Kurt Braunohler
Amy Schumer
Kumail Nanjiani
Pete Holmes

Note: On the official Bonnaroo page linked above, this lineup said "Pete Homes" instead of "Pete Holmes." More fodder for Monday's upcoming Roast of Pete Holmes at the UCB! I have made my reservation. Have you? Also, the "Butterfinger Comedy Network" supposedly will upload some footage from 2008's Bonnaroo comedy performances starting in April. Also, more info on other comedy festivals and when they're happening, as always, listed on my festivals and contest page.
