Goldthwait, Schaal among 'Wits' lineup at Fitzgerald in April


Comedy stars Bobcat Goldthwait and Kristen Schaal are coming back to St. Paul this spring to headline "Wits" at the Fitzgerald Theater, the Pioneer Press reports.

Comedian John Hodgman is also on the list of guests appearing on the American Public Media radio show in April. Goldthwait, Schaal and Hodgman have each headlined the show before.

"Wits" organizers say Schaal will appear with indie rock band Typhoon on April 4, and Goldthwait will headline the show with singer Matt Nathanson April 18. Hodgman will appear with rapper Jean Grae on April 25.

The show typically draws big name comedy stars and musicians to the Fitzgerald.

Last fall's "Wits" guest list included Aisha Tyler, Ellie Kemper and Jim Gaffigan. Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe also hosted one of the programs.
