Of all the big names in the summer music festival game, Bonnaroo has always seemed the most ripe for parody to us. We don’t mean this as a knock on the festival. We simply mean the half-hippie, half-hipster stigma it has suffered from in recent years is ready for jokes. This is why we were pretty thrilled to see they’re making at least a portion of the comedy this year a roast on the festival itself, led by Jeffrey Ross (a host of the other Comedy Central “roasters” are also on tap, like Greg Giraldo). Our boy Aziz will also be there. We remember seeing him many moons ago in the early years of that smelly comedy tent, when he was busy telling his first midget-motored drafts of R. Kelly jokes. Now that his Raaaaaaaandy alter-ego hip-hop mixtape will soon be making the rounds, we can only hope he also calls out Jay-Z and some other emcees for some on-stage, impromptu shenanigans. Check the full lineup here.
Oh yeah, and Conan will be there! He’s getting some work!
