The Tenacious D dudes have curated a pretty sweet lineup for their second annual Festival Supreme comedy showcase with the casts of Workaholics and the State (!), Margaret Cho, and SNL alums Fred Armisen and Bill Hader at the helm. And for this year's event on October 25, they're moving their location from Santa Monica to the L.A. Sports Arena and Exposition Park Shrine Expo Hall and Grounds in University Park (see update below).

The one-day comedy fest mixes in music with some comedic acts we're pretty stoked about. The Aquabats, Peaches, Tenacious D (duh), Eagles of Death Metal, Awkwafina and DJ Lance Rock of Yo Gabba Gabba will be some of the musical acts performing. Other highlights include Metalocalypse, Nick Kroll, Drunk History, Comedy Bang Bang, Jenny Slate, and Silicon Valley's Kumail Nanjiani.

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 30 at 10 a.m.; general admission is $99 and VIP tickets cost $250. More information can be found on their website here.

Here's the poster for the lineup:
