"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 local vendors. 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.
