|Comedy Central To Stream Bonnaroo Comedy Performances
Posted: May 26, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- Comedy Central says it will stream comedy acts from the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival next month.
The network announced Thursday that it will webcast a three-hour show June 12 featuring performances from Bonnaroo's Comedy Tent.
The 10-year-old festival held in Manchester, Tenn., centers on music but has long offered top comedy acts as counter-programming.
This year's performers include Lewis Black, Donald Glover, Eugene Mirman, Cheech Marin and John Waters. Jon Benjamin will host. His Comedy Central show "Jon Benjamin Has a Van" makes its debut in June.
The show will package the acts from the four-day festival. It will stream on ComedyCentral.com and be available on mobile and tablet devices.
Music acts from the festival will be streamed by Vevo.
