Jacobson and Glazer are excited to bring their unique brand of comedy to Bonnaroo with the live show "Down n' Dirty Hosted by 'Broad City's' Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer Featuring Bridget Everett & the Tender Moments and Brad Williams" taking place at the Comedy Theatre on Saturday, June 14 at 2:30 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. and Sunday, June 15 at 2:00 p.m. "Broad City" the Comedy Central series, created by UCB alums Jacobson and Glazer and produced by Amy Poehler, is an odd-couple comedy about two best friends navigating their twenties in New York City. Abbi and Ilana are broke and flawed, and they don't shy away from the sticky situations NYC throws at them - they dive right into the muck. But no matter how bad it gets, these young broads are always down with whatever hits them.
Set on 700 acres in Manchester, TN, Bonnaroo is a four-day festival that draws 80,000 fans every summer. Featuring over 120 musical performances, along with comedy, cinema, sustainability workshops and more, the grounds are converted into a virtual city of music and art. The legendary event began in 2002 as a remarkable idea to serve a passionate fanbase, and ended up becoming the premier multi-day concert destination of the summer which dynamic and eclectic programming paved the way for the age of the great American music festival. Bonnaroo has now evolved into becoming much more than just a concert destination; it has become a cultural touchstone and, for two generations of music fans, a rite of passage. Each year, the lineup cements Bonnaroo as a force in music discovery, exposing its fans to legendary artists, current favorites, as well as breaking acts.
