David Cross to record comedy special at Moontower; Maya Rudolph added to lineup

Princess photoMoontower Comedy Fest audiences may eventually hear their own guffaws on David Cross’ next comedy special, “Making America Great Again.” The acerbic and thoughtful comic will tape his new special over back-to-back shows at the comedy festival in Austin at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on April 22. Tickets for the David Cross shows at the Paramount Theatre go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at moontowercomedyfest.com.

The festival also announced that Prince cover band, Princess, fronted by “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum, will perform at the festival. (Check out their blazing cover of “Darlin Nikki” here.) Individual tickets for the Princess show go on sale Thursday.

The festival begins rolling out individual tickets sales for all the headliners Thursday, with sales spread out over the 11th (Maritn Short, Maria Bamford, Anjelah Johnson presents Bon Qui Qui’s Gold Plated Dreams Tour featuring Group 1 Crew), 12th (Kevin Smith, Leslie Jones & Colin Jost in “Leslie Loves Colin”), and 15th (Jimmy Carr, Janeane Garofalo, Piff The Magic Dragon, Jim Norton and Hasan Minhaj’s one-man show “Homecoming King”). Tickets will go on sale for the respective shows at 10 a.m.
