Sure, USANA Amphitheatre can handle thousands of KISS devotes or hordes of Tim McGraw fans — but can the West Valley City venue handle some of the nation’s funniest comedians?
Utah will find out on Saturday, Sept. 6, when a touring comedy extravaganza, with the unwieldy title Funny or Die Presents Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival 2014, rolls into USANA Amphitheatre, 5150 S. 6055 West, West Valley City.
The line-up for the Utah show includes:
• Aziz Ansari ("Parks & Recreation")
• Chris Hardwick ("The Nerdist")
• Demetri Martin ("In a World...")
• Hannibal Buress ("Neighbors")
• Jeff Ross (staple of Comedy Central roasts)
• Louis C.K. ("Louie")
• Sarah Silverman ("A Million Ways to Die in the West")
• Whitney Cummings (creator of "2 Broke Girls")
There’s also a second stage, emceed by Brody Stevens. There’s also the Cut Throat Freak Show, billed as "roaming troupe of misfit performers, tasty treats, libations and more."
Tickets for the Oddball festival, ranging from $25 to $99.75, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. at Smith’s Tix.
