Funny or Die announced today that Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords will headline FoD's first-ever Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, which will take to the road for a multi-city tour in August, beginning in Austin, Tex. It's not going to make it all the way to San Francisco or Oakland though, so comedy and curiosity fans will have to trek over to the outdoor Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View to see the show.

Other headliners include Kristen Schaal, John Mulaney, Hannibal Buress, Al Madrigal, Demetri Martin, and Chris D'Elia. Then there's going to be a second comedy stage, featuring local comedians, hosted by the always energetic Brody Stevens. Additionally, the show's website promises "freaks" and psychics and booze. Maybe the psychics will be able to predict the comedians' punchlines? Or your money back.

Tickets go on sale Friday for the Sept. 20 show.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
