It’s going to be another smashing time at the Sasquatch! Music Festival as the lineup was just announced. The crazy cool thing is that there will be some killer comics in this year’s lineup who will bring a fun sense of humor to the music jubilee. The festival will run from May 24-27 (Memorial Day Weekend) at the Gorge, which is the internationally acclaimed concert venue that was carved into the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA.
One of the powerful comedians in this year’s festival is Nick Offerman. Receiving the Television Critics Association Award for Achievement in Comedy in 2011, Nick brings his funny presence and strong delivery to the party. Nick is best known for his role as Ron Swanson on NBC’s critically acclaimed Parks & Recreation as well as being the ultimate man’s man who might be responsible for about 1/3 of the animated .gifs the Internet cranks out on a daily basis.
The next heavy hitter announced is Kyle Kinane. Kyle is a hilarious comedian who has been called “bleak and misanthropic” which he views as a complement. He has been in many of major comedy shows such as “The Very Funny Show” on TBS, “Live at Gotham,” “Comedy Central Presents” and “The World Stands Up” on the BBC. He also just released his latest stand-up special Whiskey Icarus which made our top 10 Comedy Albums of 2013.
Another strong comedian and writer is Joe Mande. Joe has made many appearances on comedy powerhouses such as Comedy Central, Conan and VH1 Best Week Ever. He is also a writer for Parks and Recreation, Delocated, and Kroll Show.
Other comedians that are part of the announced lineup include Mike Birbiglia, Jenny Slate, Brett Gelman, Jon Daily, James Adomian, Brody Stevens, Nancy & Beth (aka Megan Mullally & Stephanie Hunt). With the strong mix of music complimented with the heavy hitting comics, this is sure to be one wild festival.
