Party on, everybody. A new highlight has been announced in the upcoming Colossal Clusterfest in San Francisco, and it involves already announced performers Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson of Broad City fame. They will be using their primary set time at 4:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 3 to do a "once-in-a-lifetime live reading" of the Wayne's World screenplay, in celebration of the film's 25th anniversary. What's more: They will be accompanied by all-female Queen cover band, The Killer Queens.
The appeal of Wayne's World to the Broad City gals should be fairly plain from their situation comedy, and this does seem like an idea that is ripe for laughs. They'll also be joined in reading by the likes of Tig Notaro, who'll be playing the Rob Lowe role Benjamin Kane, and Tia Carrere, who will be reprising the role she played in the film, Cassandra. Hilariously, Ron Funches has been cast as accident-prone Stacy, originally played Lara Flynn Boyle.
A couple hours later, Ilana and Abbi will be back on the same stage, at 8 p.m. on June 3, for a screening of something from Broad City and a live Q&A with Ilana's brother, a recurring character on the show, Eliot Glazer.
The three-day comedy and music festival is happening for the first time this year in SF's Civic Center, and other highlights we're now learning about include a venue dubbed "Paddy's Pub," i.e. the main location of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, where there will be It's Always Sunny trivia games, bloopers, and daily games of Flipadelphia; and a drag queen review of some kind on Sunday night, June 4, with Rupaul's Drag Race stars Alaska Thunderf**k, Bob the Drag Queen, Jujubee, and Ginger Minj. And you heard Jerry Seinfeld is going to be there, right? Check out the full daily schedules here.
Three-day and single-day tickets to the festival, which runs from Friday, June 2 to Sunday, June 4, are still available here.
