"It took the extraordinary talents of Dave Chappelle and Flight of The
Conchords' Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement to create such an amazing night
for comedy fans in such incredible summertime venues," said Geof Wills,
President of Live Nation Comedy. "We have an amazing supporting cast of
comedians on two stages, and lots of extras that will make this a night to
remember for comedy fans everywhere."

"We always love to push the comedy boundaries at Funny Or Die and this
festival will do just that," said Dick Glover, CEO of Funny Or Die. "It's the
perfect blend of comedy and crazy that will for sure resonate with comedy fans
looking for a one of a kind experience."

Dave Chappelle is without a doubt one of the most distinctive voices working
in comedy today. A comedian, screenwriter, television and film producer,
actor and artist, Mr. Chappelle has been working in the entertainment industry
since the age of 14. His 2003, boundary–bashing television series,
"Chappelle's Show," catapulted the comic into international stardom. Since
leaving the show, Chappelle has continued to work rooms from New York to Los
Angeles and everywhere in between, often dropping in unannounced to the
delight of comedy fans.

In a buoyant career spanning almost fifteen years, Flight Of The Conchords has
become one of the world's favorite comedy and musical acts. After getting
their start in standup, Bret and Jemaine were launched onto the global stage
with their acclaimed HBO comedy series Flight Of The Conchords. The series
spanned two seasons and earned them a massive 10 Emmy Nominations and a WGA
nomination for Best Comedy series. The duo have also made an impact in the
film world. Bret recently took on the role of Music Supervisor for The
Muppets movie and won the Best Original Song Oscar for his composition Man Or
Muppet. His partner in crime, Jemaine, was featured in the hit movie Men In
Black III. The duo's infectious live performances of well-known songs like
"Business Time," "Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor," and "Fashion of Danger,"
have made them a favorite of concert audiences all over the world.
