Festivals aren’t just for music—for the fourth consecutive year, Oddball Fest is bringing an array of comedians to Massachusetts for an all-out comedy tour.

On Thursday, Live Nation and Funny or Die announced the tour’s stellar lineup, which features big stand-up and television names that rotate in each city. The Massachusetts show includes Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver, along with Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson and Jay Pharaoh.

Comedians Sebastian Maniscalco, Jeff Ross, Tom Segura, Katherine Ryan, Kyle Dunnigan, and Big Jay Oakerson on IFC’s Slightly Off Comedy Stage round out the Massachusetts bill.


The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival kicks off August 25 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and ends October 2 in Phoenix. It swings through Massachusetts at the Mansfield Xfinity Center on September 9 and Hartford, Connecticut’s Xfinity Theater on September 5.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, July 25 at Live Nation and range from $38 to $133.50. Citi card members can participate in a pre-sale from Friday, July 22 at 10 a.m. to Sunday, July 24 at 10 p.m.
