The inaugural festival lineup includes a diverse and deep roster of established and emerging talent such as Sarah Silverman & Friends, Ice Cube, Hannibal Buress, Tig Notaro, Pete Davidson, Fred Armisen, Natasha Leggero, Tegan and Sara, Chromeo, Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Bob Odenkirk, Vince Staples, Chris Hardwick, Reggie Watts, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Princess featuring Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum, and many more. The full lineup is available at www.clusterfest.com.

Colossal Clusterfest will be a massive, shared, fan-focused comedy experience — the biggest ever produced — and we are thrilled to join forces with Superfly to launch this unprecedented comedy festival in the great city of San Francisco,” said Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central. “Clusterfest will celebrate comedy in all its various forms. From headliners to comics-to-watch to podcasters to sketch to improv, fans of comedy are in store for an immersive experience that not only connects them to their favorite comedy stars, but also provides fantastic opportunities for discovery.”

“We’re incredibly excited and proud to be partnering with Comedy Central to launch Colossal Clusterfest in San Francisco, a city with such a deep and vibrant comedy history,” said Jonathan Mayers, co-founder of Superfly. “Comedy has been core to our programming at Bonnaroo and Outside Lands for over a decade and we’re thrilled to be creating an experience that shines the spotlight on comedy while still acknowledging our music festival roots.”

A staple of Colossal Clusterfest includes interactive attractions featuring three iconic comedy shows, Comedy Central’s South Park, FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and fan favorite Seinfeld.

 

  • Attendees can explore the world of South Park through a themed food and drink experience served up by San Francisco’s top chefs including Chili con Carnival, the tears of Tenorman will be honored with the best chili in town, and dining at replicas of the show’s most recognized restaurants and bars such as Tweek Bros. Coffee, Raisins, Les Bos, Casa Bonita and Whistlin’ Willy’s. Fans will also be able to insert themselves into life-sized scenes built out in 2D/3D format of some of the most memorable moments in South Park’s history for a photo op and dive into nostalgia with a life size Memberberry Ball Pit experience.
  • The It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia attraction brings Paddy’s Pub to life, serving thematic food and drink such as “Beef and Beer” and “Rum Ham” and hosting interactive programming unique to the show, such as Flipadelphia and pub trivia.
  • The Seinfeld attraction will feature a full scale re-creation of the show’s famous apartment, the world’s largest Festivus celebration and a smorgasbord of classic foods from “Monk’s Cafe” and “The Soup Nazi.”

 

 

With a nod to San Francisco’s rich food culture, top local chefs and restaurants will craft menus inspired by their favorite comedic moments. Festival goers can also indulge in some of the Bay Area’s best food, beer and wine, from vendors including Philz Coffee, Tacolicious, Trick Dog, Wing Wing and Pizzeria Delfina. Colossal Clusterfest is proud to partner with several local nonprofits, including Downtown Streets Team, Larkin Street Youth and the Tenderloin Museum. A portion of all festival ticket sales will be donated to each organization to help further their missions and make a difference in the San Francisco community.

On Sunday, June 4, as the festival comes to a close, Comedy Central will give its fans massive FOMO with an exclusive inside look at Colossal Clusterfest in the form of a live 90 minute on-air special.

halpinm May 17, 2017 at 4:01PM

UBISOFT® AND SOUTH PARK DIGITAL STUDIOS WILL RELEASE SOUTH PARK™: THE FRACTURED BUT WHOLE™ ON OCTOBER 17, 2017

Players Who Pre-Order South Park: The Fractured But Whole Will Receive a Copy of South Park: The Stick of Truth for Free

SAN FRANCISCO – May 17, 2017 – Today, Ubisoft® and South Park Digital Studios announced that South Park™: The Fractured But Whole™ will be available at partners across North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Asia) on October 17, 2017. From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, The Fractured But Whole is an outrageous sequel to 2014’s award-winning title, South Park™: The Stick of Truth™ and will release on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.

With crime on the rise in South Park, the streets have never been more dangerous. As the sun sets on the quiet Colorado town, havoc and chaos unleash a reign of terror and the seedy underbelly of the city comes alive. The town needs new heroes to rise! Eric Cartman seizes the opportunity to save the town and create the best superhero franchise ever, his own Coon & Friends with himself as the leader, The Coon.

Every superhero has an origin, and Coon & Friends are no different. Continuing in their role as the New Kid, players will discover their backstory, assemble their unique costumes, and harness their fart-based powers from numerous hero classes to create their own original hero. An all-new combat system offers unique opportunities to master space and time while on the battlefield, and a revamped looting and crafting system gives players the freedom to craft their own equipment to aid them in battle.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available in four editions: Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold and Collector’s. Anyone who purchases South Park: The Fractured But Whole will receive South Park: The Stick of Truth for free.* If you pre-purchase the game at select partners, you can start playing The Stick of Truth immediately.

All pre-orders will also receive an exclusive in-game assistant, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud. The streets of South Park aren’t as safe as they used to be, and even the most seasoned South Park veteran will need help. Towelie: Your Gaming Bud provides helpful and hilarious advice and commentary to players at key locations throughout the game.
