Brett Davis and Sally Burtnick have been doing a monthly comedy showcase called The Macaulay Culkin Show for nearly a decade (for many years at the departed Shea Stadium), a show which has nothing to do with the actor. That will change, though, with the 6th Annual Macaulay Culkin Show Summer Comedy Festival which happens August 18 at The Bell House and will feature the Home Alone star and Pizza Underground member for the first time. "What is he doing? We don't know," say Brett and Sally. "But we do know that we are continuing our tradition of showcasing a sampling of some of the most unique and hilarious acts in comedy today. And we're at The Bell House, so there's gonna be air conditioning this time."

Even without the man himself, the 6th Annual Macaulay Culkin Show Summer Comedy Festival has a pretty exciting lineup, including short performances from Jon Glaser, Chris Gethard, Ana Fabrega, Josh Gondelman, Clare O’Kane, Lorelei Ramirez, Saam Taggart, Jes Tom, and more. Tickets are on sale now.

Speaking of Anna Fabrega, Los Espookys, the great HBO series she co-created with Fred Armisen and Julio Torres, just got renewed for a second season.
