KROQ revealed details first thing this morning: Eddie Izzard, Bob Saget and (no joke) Larry King — yes, that Larry King — are among the comedians slated to make their debut appearances at Kevin & Bean’s April Foolishness. Now in its fourth year, the modern rock radio station’s Weenie Roast of funny returns to Gibson Amphitheatre on April 7.
Izzard, the 50-year-old English star who last summer became the first stand-up comic to headline the Hollywood Bowl, isn’t the only import on the bill: Australian jokers Jim Jefferies and Tim Minchin also will perform. Also, after three years of somewhat repeated lineups, this one is almost entirely new; Jay Mohr is the event’s only veteran act.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, March 1, at 10 a.m. exclusively to KROQ Street Team members. Prices weren’t readily available, but typically they run $30-$100. Proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and the Cedars-Sinai NICU.
