Comedy Bang Bang are Bonnaroo-ing it
While you are noodle-dancing your way to, and at, the 2013 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee (June 13 - 14), you might not be aware that this year marks the milestone 10-year anniversary of their annually-awesome and totally legendary Bonnaroo Comedy Theatre (Hosted by IFC). This year they are really shooting the works with a gold-standard, rock-solid, pant-shittingly awesome line up. So while you're at the festival, take a break from those dumb bands and thrill to the air-conditioned comedy of, in alphabetical order, James Adomian, Cristela Alonzo, Eric Andre, Maria Bamford, Mike Birbiglia, Jerrod Carmichael, Michael Che, Comedy Bang! Bang! with Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts, David Cross, Kyle Dunnigan, Chris Gethard, Nikki Glaser, Ed Helms' Whisky Sour Radio Hour, Improvised Shakespeare Company, Jared Logan, Bob Saget, and Daniel Tosh.
If you'd like to see Ed Helms doing music here in NYC, his bluegrass trio plays Rockwood Music Hall on April 6 and tickets are on sale now.

by Klaus Kinski and Tig Notaro
Tig Notaro is a living super hero and I was so thrilled that she took the time to do a Top 10 for us. Even though Tig was previously an LA-based comedian, over the years we here at BV have admired her and always did what we could to trumpet her greatness to you, the loyal BV reader. We even managed to get her onto a BV-SxSW show back in 2010.
More recently, perhaps you caught her at The Dave Hill Explosion at the UCB Theater back on November 29, 2012? Or perhaps you caught her at the Bell House on November 17, 2012 when she brought her live podcast Professor Blastoff to a live, sold out audience? If anything, I sincerely hope you ponied up and bought her Louis CK-released live album which is absolutely brilliant, heart-wrenching, and totally inspiring. Oh, but just a heads up; Tig Notaro: Live is no longer available on Louis CK's website! Now you gotta procure that shizz on iTunes, brah. Tig is spending a lot more time in NYC these days, so keep your eyes on BV for whatever Tig news comes our way. In the meantime, enjoy her eclectic, not-necessarily-music-oriented Top 10 list, below.
Eric Andre and Hannibal Buress will team up for a string of live dates to bring Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show to life again in the flesh.

Stick around for a DJ gig from Eric Andre after the show.
Of course Hannibal Buress is always available at Knitting Factory every Sunday, including this Sunday (9/16) when he'll join W. Kamau Bell, Julia Segal, Zainab Johnson, and Daniel Simonsen.
All tour dates are listed below along with an Eric Andre Show video.
Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire at Glasslands in 2011 (more by Erik Erikson)
Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show is taking its show on the road this month with a few dates, the first of which was this past Monday (7/9) in San Francisco. Each date includes a musical guest, "real and fake celebrity appearances, and all of the demented antics you have come to expect." The next appearance is in Chicago this Sunday (7/15) with Flying Lotus and that one doubles as an official Pitchfork after party. Later in the month it comes to NYC for two shows: July 19 at Santos Party House with Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire and July 21 at Public Assembly with Wiki. Tickets are on sale now for the Santos show and the Public Assembly show.
Meanwhile, as mentioned several times, you can catch Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire in NYC TONIGHT (7/13) when his tour with Killer Mike (who plays an Eric Andre show in Atlanta), El-P, and Despot hits Irving Plaza. Tickets for tonight's show are still available.
Lists of all remaining dates on the Killer Mike/El-P tour and the Eric Andre show tour are below, along with a video of Killer Mike on the Eric Andre show...
