Are you ready to laugh and eat, San Francisco? Comedy Central and the folks that bring us Outside Lands and Bonnaroo have put together a two day festival that combines classic comedy sitcoms with world-class headlining comics and amazing food. Brace yourself for Colossal Clusterfest, coming to San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Auditorium from June 2nd through 4th. Get a load of this line-up:

Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Bill Burr, Sarah Silverman, Hannibal Buress, Teagan and Sara, and Ice Cube will headline the comedy and music portion of the festival taking place on five stages. (Not Fusilli Jerry. Real Jerry.) Even SF Sketchfest is adding their own curated comedy shows.

In addition to the over 50 comedians and bands performing, dozens of Bay Area restaurants and chefs will being their hyper-creative food offerings and experiences inspired by the sitcoms, "Seinfeld," "South Park," and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

For example, Sarah and Evan Rich from Rich Table, Michelin starred SPQR’s, Matthew Accarrino and culinary influencer Binging with Babish ill compete in a chili cook-off inspired by “Chili con Carnival,” from the “Scott Tenorman Must Die” episode of "South Park."  The actual actor who portrayed "The Soup Nazi" will serve up soup and stew nearby the full-scale recreation of Jerry's apartment. And a true-to-size replica of Paddy’s Pub from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" will be created, complete with themed drinks and surprise guests. 

Wanna drink too? Attendees can head to The Corkscrew to sample wines from local purveyors including Scribe, Turley Wine Cellars, Banshee, Mouton Noir, SLO Down Wines, and Hoxie Spritzer. The event will even feature a tricked out 1969 El Camino serving up sparkling wine.

A pass to all three days runs $250, with VIP packages starting at $599. But, if you only want to venture into comedy and food heaven for one day, pick up a one day pass for either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday for $100. And yes, a Fesivus pole will be available all three days.
