The brains behind Comedy Central television and Superfly are partnering up, and are taking the show on the road for a  3-day comedy festival this summer!

The festival cleverly named Colossal Clusterfest is scheduled to take place in San Francisco, between June 2nd and June 4th, featuring a wide-range of comedy acts.

Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart and Bill Burr will headline the festival, but throughout the three days, attendees will also have the chance to see other notable acts such as Fred Armisen, Ice Cube, Hannibal Buress, Sarah Silverman & Friends, and more.

Network president Kent Alterman says the Network has been involved in quite a few comedy festivals but they wanted to create one that allowed them the connect directly do their fans.

“Comedy Central has been involved with different comedy festivals along the way, but in a more limited capacity,” said Alterman in an interview. “This time, we wanted to create a comedy-driven event that allows us to connect directly with our fans.”

“The single site will really lend itself to discovery,” said Superfly co-founder Jonathan Mayers. “You may be coming for Jerry or Kevin, but you’re bound to stumble on other, emerging talent.”
