watching Billy on the Street last night gave me an idea of Billy on the Farm. it could be an awful idea, but i love that stupid show. plus it's on fuse and doesn't fuse always have a stand or host something in the barn?

I would bet that Erik Griffin will also be at Roo. He's Montez on workaholics and also does a lot of stand-up. As CC is usually a large part of Roo Comedy I can't imagine him not being there. He's got a big gap in an otherwise tight tour.
I know Blake, Ders, and Adam were all on the farm two years ago.
I would love to get some good comedy podcasts on the farm this year. WTF, Doug Loves Movies, You Made it Weird, or How Did This Get Made would all be great and would probably get me into the comedy tent for the first time in 5 years (I say this every year and it never happens).
Marc Maron was there last year so WTF probably won't be happening. I'd love to see How Did This Get Made? They did a show at Bumbershoot this year so definitely are open to festivals. I'd like more of a mix of comedians doing their podcasts and stand-up instead of just stand-up at Roo. As far as I know there haven't been any pod tapings yet. Comedy Bang Bang did a tour last summer to support the IFC show. It'd be incredible if we got that and then solo sets from whatever guests they bring along. James Adomian and Paul F. Tompkins, please!
They will announce the big comedy act with the lineup on Tuesday right? It seems like I remember Aziz being announced when the lineup came out last year.
I am hoping for Louis C.K., Tosh is coming to Roanoke VA on the Tuesday night after Roo. If he is not on the lineup I will just see him then, since I live like a half hour away. After spending a good potion of the day last year getting a ticket for Aziz, and seeing the show it will have to be somebody I am very interested in.
On the Website, it shows that IFC will host the comedy tent. I am guessing we will get at least a couple of acts with IFC ties, Porlandia, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Marc Maron, or the Whites Kids U Know.
Please please pleeaase gift us with a podcast taping rather than a showcase of constant CB!B! guests. Though I suppose the latter wouldn't be so bad. Here are five of the best clips I could find on Youtube to justify my excitement:
And my personal favorite (it's a bit of a slow burn):
Or Chris Rock / Dave Chapelle would be awesome as well
Would be amazing but likely it's too big for Roo. I imagine the shows on that tour (if it definitely happens. Seems like it's heading that way) going a few hours. I'd absolutely to see it happen somehow though.
