The organizers of the inaugural Minneapolis Comedy Festival have announced another Hollywood name, former "Entourage" star Jeremy Piven.

The actor, who made his name starring as Ari Gold in the HBO series that ran from 2004 to 2011, will perform at the Pantages Theatre on Sunday, June 30.

He's the latest big name announced by the festival, which last week confirmed Dax Shepard has been added to a bill already including Seth Meyers, John Crist, Bob Newhart and Cedric The Entertainer.

The festival will run between June 24 and June 30 across several downtown Minneapolis locations, including the Orpheum and Target Center.

Piven has not had the smoothest of times in recent years, with Variety reporting he was the subject of sexual misconduct allegations in early 2018, allegations which he emphatically denied.

As well as "Entourage," Piven is known for playing the title character in the ITV/PBS series "Mr. Selfridge," and also starred in Hollywood movies including "Grosse Pointe Blank," "Serendipity," "The Family Man" and "Old School."

Tickets to see him in Minneapolis will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.
