Tenacious D's annual Los Angeles-based comedy event, Festival Supreme, is stepping up its A-game this year with their lineup of big-name comedians, troupes and musicians. We're talking about folks like Amy Poehler, The Kids in the Hall and Die Antwoord who will be gracing the stages at the Shrine Expo Hall and Grounds come October 10.

While it's a given that Jack Black and Kyle Gass' comedy rock band, Tenacious D, will also be performing at the one-day festival, they are apparently playing jazz this time around. (They released an album in 2012 that was simply titled, "Jazz"). They'll be in good company, with other musical acts like The Darkness, Andrew W.K. (for a "very solo show"), Big Freedia, and Rocket From the Crypt. As for the comedians, expect to see Jenny Slate, Aubrey Plaza, Kristen Schaal, Nathan Fielder and Tim Minchin. There's also a special appearance from the original cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, June 11 at 12 p.m. PDT. There are a limited number of tickets that are $75, and then the rest of the general admission tickets will be $99 and VIP tickets at $250. More information can be found on their website here.

Here's the poster with the full lineup:
