Dave Chapelle and Flight of the Conchords are Coming to Dallas in August

Funny Or Die, the internet comedy mega-site founded by Will Ferrell et al. has just announced its first major comedy production, and one of the biggest comedy tours ever to hit the US, the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival.

Featuring the large-scale return to stand-up of Dave Chappelle and an appearance from New Zealand's 4th most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo Flight of the Conchords, the Oddball Festival even has an excellent undercard with the likes of Demetri Martin, Hannibal Buress, and Kristen Schaal. We're also promised "psychics, booze, and freaks", a triumvirate that could be covered by just one of my ex-girlfriends if FoD are struggling for bookings.

It'll be heading our way on August 25th at the Gexa, which one would imagine will be somewhat warm, and tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am.
