Bonnaroo Comedian | Cameron Esposito
Stage & Time | TBA
Bonnaroo has always been about more than just music, and nothing exemplifies that better than the impressive array of comedians the fest recruits for its Comedy Theatre each summer. The 2015 lineup is no exception, and, for the first time, we’ve decided to spotlight each performer individually as we’ve done for musical acts for the last several years. Catching comedy is tough, since it sometimes requires missing out on musical acts, but, trust us, it’s an incredible experience. Keep reading for your Bonnaroo Comedian of the Day…
Progressive and hilarious standup comic and writer Cameron Esposito has had an envious several years. Propelled by a breakout 2013 appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, where fellow guest Jay Leno would dub her “the future of comedy,” Esposito has since appeared on Conan, Chelsea Lately, Last Call with Carson Daly, @midnight, Maron, and Adventure Time, as well as podcasts Comedy Bang! Bang! and How Did This Get Made. A regular performer at LA’s UCB, Cameron also hosts two podcasts of her own, Put Your Hands Together and Wham Bam Pow. The openly gay performer released a fantastic album, Same Sex Symbol, last year, and has received rave reviews from the likes of The A.V. Club (where she also writes a column), Consequence of Sound, LA Weekly, Time Out, Jezebel, Paste, and tons more. Topical, socially relevant, and intelligent in her style; needless to say, she’s a Bonnaroo must.
