Outside Lands will also present plenty of laughs during the fest at its comedy and variety tent dubbed “The Barbary.” Co-curated by San Francisco Comedy Festival SF Sketchfest, The Barbary’s headliners include Jeffrey Ross, Craig Robinson, Maria Bamford, Eugene Mirman, Rob Huebel and Wyatt Cenac along with a seemingly endless list of talent. The Barbary will feature comedians trying to out-top each other for the most ridiculous story in “Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction” and will present the ultimate in mash-ups by combining karaoke and ping pong under the banner “Singin’ & Pingin.’”
