Last month, we announced that Milwaukee Comedy Festival had lined up a pair of excellent veteran comedians to headline nights of the fest (July 31 to August 4). It turns out that was only the beginning. Since telling you Todd Barry and Ari Shaffir would be anchoring the 14th annual event, Milwaukee Comedy Festival booked Beth Stelling to headline an August 3 show at Shank Hall, thus cementing this year as the long-running festival’s biggest and best year yet. But there’s more!

Today, Milwaukee Comedy Festival announced that actor, author, comedian, music video hug-giver, and trucker hat proponent Judah Friedlander will also be taking part in the fest. Fresh off the release of last year’s acclaimed Netflix special, America Is The Greatest Country In The United States, the former 30 Rock series regular will be performing all new material at Shank Hall on Friday, August 2 as part of his “Future President” tour.

Tickets to the 8 p.m. show cost $20 and go on sale Monday, May 6. Stay tuned for the rest of the festival’s lineup in the coming weeks. Until then, trust this year’s festival is going to be amazing.
