Kroll has made a name for himself in comedy sitcoms such as FX’s The League, and he even created his own Comedy Central series, The Kroll Show. His new animated series, Big Mouth, is set to premiere exclusively on Netflix in September.

Most recently, Kroll and fellow comedian John Mulaney released Oh Hello, a comedy sketch-turned-Broadway musical about the antics of two elderly Manhattan men, and is now available on Netflix. Maybe their characters, Gil and George, will make an appearance on the Barbary stage!

Goldblum has proved himself to be a renaissance man of the entertainment industry: his television credits range from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to Law and Order: Criminal Intent, with plenty in between. His notable film credits include The Grand Budapest Hotel, Jurassic Park, and Independence Day.

Goldblum is set to star alongside Danny Devito in what is sure to be a side-splitting comedy series being released by Amazon, so be sure to look out for future updates! In the meantime, Goldblum’s set will definitely be a popular destination at Outside Lands; if you’re attending the festival, get to the Barbary stage early to claim a post!

If that announcement wasn’t enough to get you excited for the upcoming festival, Outside Lands has also released the lineup for the night shows around San Francisco to keep the festivities going. The lineup includes Belle and Sebastian playing the Independent on Thursday night, Porches on Friday night at Rickshaw Stop, and many more!

You can buy or enter to win tickets to any of these shows from the festival’s website.
