Brittani’s Team Pick: Bonnaroo Comedy Tent Live

At this very moment Laneia and Sarah are at Bonnaroo and you are seething with jealousy as you wonder if your refrigerator has acquired magical powers and restocked itself since the last time you checked it ten minutes ago. Nevermind, that’s what I’m doing. But if you’re reading this that means you probably aren’t at the festival either. Bonnaroo may not be broadcasting musical performances on youtube a la Coachella but Comedy Central will be live streaming the performances of some fantastic comedians.

At 6pm ET, Sunday June 12th, there will be so much stand-up happening and it could all be happening on your computer screen. Hurrah! There is a serious lack of female comedians because women suck and aren’t funny but the one that did manage to make the bill is queer comedian Tig Notaro. Other performers I’m excited to see include Donald Glover of Community, 30 Rock writer, Hannibal Buress, and Daily Show Correspondent, Lewis Black. What female stand-up comedians would you have liked to see at the festival?

Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

  1. I love this Team Pick so hard. Tig Notaro is one of my favorite comics. Her “no moleste” bit is classic!

  2. Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer. Their podcast (You Had To Be There) is pretty much one of my favorite things ever. or at least right now.

    • Gonna listen to one of them. If I get hooked and spend the rest of the day searching for chores to do so I can have an excuse to listen, I will find you and thank you with yelling.

  3. does anyone know anything about the tig notaro controversy? i’ve only heard conflicting accounts

    • I heard about the controversy. I’ve talked to many comedians .I looked at the court documents. There is no doubt that Tig Notaro is a very twisted and dangerous individual. From the documents alone, I was able to glean that Notaro committed many felonies and wasted thousands upon thousands of tax payer dollars.She’s being sued civilly but the criminal courts are the next step. It’s sad, she had a good career going for her.
