The top names in comedy--including Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer--have been lighting up venues around the country on the 2015 Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, which launched at Kansas City's Starlight Theatre on August 28. The tour has just a few weeks left before it wraps up on October 18 in Dallas, and tickets for Oddball Fest are currently available and averaging $132 on the secondary market, according to data provided by TiqIQ.
The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival features a total of 14 comedians and runs for nearly five hours (including all the breaks). Other comedians on the roster include Bridget Everett, Jay Pharoah, Jim Norton, Michael Che, Nick Kroll and Ashley Barnhill. Reviews for the tour have been strong since it launched in August and standout performances have been noted for both Ansari and Schumer, who have become two of the most well-known names in comedy over the past few years.
Schumer's summer flick, Trainwreck, has been rated as a top film of 2015. Recently it was announced that Schumer will be one of the first guests to appear on the new Stephen Colbert Late Show, and that list includes other major names like George Clooney, Jeb Bush, Scarlett Johansson and Kendrick Lamar. Last month, Schumer took the stage as an opening act at three Madonna shows in New York City.
In the final weeks, the tour will make its most expensive stop on October 11 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre outside Atlanta, where tickets average $171 with a get-in price of $54. Other pricey shows are the comedy tour's October 13 stop at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in San Francisco ($156 avg./$36 get-in), and a show on October 17 at the Austin360 Amphitheater in Austin ($150 avg./$39 get-in). On the other side of the spectrum, Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista will host the cheapest festival date on October 9, where a resale ticket average is just $101 with a $40 get-in price.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
