This Is Where It Gets Funny
Rotund rockers Tenacious D, "The Greatest Band in the World," know the magic that comes from combining comedy and music, so they're curating the inaugural Festival Supreme. Among the 25 artists -- and one canine, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog -- are heavyweights Adam Sandler, Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman and Eric Idle, who'll be sharing the sun, sand and three stages with cult stars Demetri Martin, Reggie Watts, Hannibal Buress, Fred Armisen and Neil Hamburger Band. Tenacious D's Jack Black and Kyle Gass also know that comedy greats come in twos, which is why they've packed the day with acts ranging from Tim & Eric to The Mister Show Experience to The Mighty Boosh, the British duo of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt reuniting and performing their first, big stateside gig. And don't forget ball busters like folk cuties Garfunkel & Oates and Prince cover gals Princess, featuring Maya Rudolph. For their most supreme offering, Black and Gass are promising a really big-name surprise guest. At 99 clams, let's hope it's not a hologram. Santa Monica Pier, 200 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica; Sat., Oct. 19, 3 p.m.; $99. festivalsupreme.com.
