“After last year’s spectacular success with fans, talent and the entire comedy community, we’d have to be insane to not return for another round,” said Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central. “While we are concerned anything better than last year might blow Bay Area minds into oblivion, we are prepared to take that chance.”

“Last year’s Clusterfest exceeded our expectations and we’re excited to build off that success, reimagining the live comedy experience,” said Jonathan Mayers, co-founder of Superfly. “If timing is everything, we’re exactly where we need to be as we all need to laugh now more than ever.”

In addition to comedy and musical performances, Clusterfest attendees will step into the worlds of their favorite television shows with interactive attractions from The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, South Park, Double Dare and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The South Park County Fair will invite attendees to “Come on down to Clusterfest and have yourself a time!” Festival goers can enter the world of South Park and join characters at the County Fair where attendees can try their luck at classic carnival games infused with a South Park twist.

The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, attendees will explore the finest works from Trump’s Twitter collection, his preferred vessel for “communicating” with the public. The Library will feature visual installments and a fully interactive experience for hands of all sizes, giving patrons the opportunity to memorialize and celebrate many of the “unpresidented” moments of President Trump’s Twitter history.

NickSplat, Nickelodeon’s programming block dedicated to its legendary library of hits from the ‘90s and 2000s— will bring Double Dare Presented by Mtn Dew Kickstart to Clusterfest.
