Posted 2/21/2014 1:45:00 PM

As if all the killer jams and movies weren't enough, SXSW has added comedy to its list of awesomeness this year and the lineup they announced this week looks solid.

The comedy portion of SXSW is set to take place from March 8-15 and some of the big names involved include Bill Cosby, Fred Armisen, and Seth Meyers. Other recognizables are current SNL players Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney, and Sasheer Zamata and MTV Girl Code's Nicole Byer.

But wait, there's more! Cosby's concert is going to be hosted by viral sensation Funny or Die, with an official afterparty featuring a DJ set from Chromeo. The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre are bringing some of their NY and LA performers for a slew of shows, including ASSSSCAT, a fully improvised show by Doppelgänger (Zamata, Byer, and Keisha Zollar of Broad City), and storytelling show Blackout Drunk with Jon Grabus (MTV) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project).

Other cool stuff includes popular podcasts like Comedy Bang! Bang! and You Made It Weird recording live episodes, shows like Set List and The Green Room, and panels like Inside Late Night with Seth Meyers and Portlandia: Behind the Scenes with the Creators.

Basically, it's going to be amazing. Get ready. 

The full lineup of the comedy section can be found below and, as usual, more info can be found on the SXSW website
