Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman among comics at Oddball fest, Sept. 6 at USANA Amphitheatre

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.
