Because apparently Tenacious D's phenomenal musical comedy festival wasn't enough, Funny or Die has decided to one-up them with a full blown comedy tour: The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival. Beginning in late August, this tour (which promises 'a full festival experience') is being headlined by none other than Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords. For tour dates and more general info on the rest of the acts (including AP.net esteemed staffer Cody Nelson's favorite John Mulaney), go here. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
