9 more headliners announced for 2020 Minneapolis Comedy Festival

'Parks and Rec' star Nick Offerman is among them.

The organizers of the second Minneapolis Comedy Festival have announced nine more headliners for the June event.

Concert promoters Outback Presents confirmed Jeff Foxworthy as the first of its headliners last week.

He is being joined by the likes of "Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman, comedy podcast stars the Doughboys, the star of Netflix baking show "Nailed It!" Nicole Byer, the often shirtless standup Bert Kreischer, and comedian/actor Whitney Cummings.

The acts will perform across a number of downtown Minneapolis venues, including the Orpheum, State Theatre, Pantages, and the Woman's Club Theatre.

Outback Presents says it's not done either, with more headliners and acts set to be announced in the coming months.
