After a successful inaugural year, the Minneapolis Comedy Festival has announced the first big name it will bring to the city in 2020.

Jeff Foxworthy has been confirmed for the week-long festival between June 15-21, 2020, playing the Orpheum Theater on Sunday, June 21.

He is an acclaimed comedian, TV personality, author, and the largest-selling comedy recording artist in history.

He was most recently on national screens as one of the judges for NBC's "Bring The Funny," alongside Chrissy Teigen and SNL cast member Kenan Thompson.

He was also the host of the FOX game show, "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" and his own comedy channel, "Jeff and Larry's Comedy Roundup" on SiriusXM.

The Minneapolis Comedy Festival managed to attract several famous comedians to the city for its inaugural year, including Seth Meyers, Bob Newhart, Cedric the Entertainer, and YouTubers Rhett and Link.

The festival is being produced by Outback Presents, a concert and comedy promoter based out of Nashville, Tennessee.

Tickets for Foxworthy go on sale this Friday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.
