Friday marks the kickoff of the third annual Clusterfest, the SF comedy and music festival that's co-produced by Comedy Central and Superfly. And in contrast to the first two years, this year things are getting shaken up with the schedule a bit, with headliners performing indoors at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, instead of on the often frigid outdoor mainstage.
This means that the still mysterious "Amy Poehler & Friends" set at 10:30 p.m. on Friday will be a seated affair in Bill Graham — and she'll be going up against the also very funny Whitney Cummings, who'll be on the outdoor stage in Civic Center.
And this means that John Mulaney will be doing not one, but two sets on Saturday — an early show at 8:15 with openers Sheng Wang and Julio Torres, and a late show at 10:15, with the same openers.
Also new this year, the festival won't shut down quite as early, as there's a "Roast Battle" hosted by Jeff Ross inside Bill Graham at 12:15 a.m. Friday night/Saturday morning, and Girl Talk will take the stage at Bill Graham at midnight on Saturday, following Mulaney's late show.
