NEW YORK, June 12, 2012 – Experience “The Roo” without having to sleep in a tent!  The festival experience comes to COMEDY CENTRAL with the world premiere of “CC:Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience,” premiering Saturday, June 23 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.

COMEDY CENTRAL and the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival have teamed up to create the one-hour compilation stand-up special, which taped over this past weekend from Bonnaroo’s famed Comedy Theatre.  “CC:Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience” is hosted by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of COMEDY CENTRAL’s “Key & Peele” and features hilarious performances from Andy Daly (“Eastbound and Down”), Jon Dore (“The Jon Dore Television Show”), Judah Friedlander (“30 Rock”), Natasha Leggero (“Ugly Americans”), and Marc Maron (“WTF with Marc Maron” podcast).  Starting Monday, June 25, fans can visit www.cc.com and iTunes to stream “CC:Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience” in its entirety.  The special will be available for 30 days.

As the only round-the-clock major U.S. music festival, Bonnaroo packs an unparalleled amount of entertainment options into its four days.  The event has offered its attendees the amenities and community spirit of a small city, with 24 hours of activities.  Rolling Stone magazine called the event “epic,” saying the weekend was full of “surprise and wonder.” Since its inauguration in 2004, the Comedy Theatre at Bonnaroo has become a favorite stop at the festival and has hosted some of the biggest comics touring today.

“CC:Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience” is executive produced by Brian Volk-Weiss, produced by New Wave Entertainment, and directed by Ryan Polito.  Jonas Larsen, JoAnn Grigioni, and Anne Harris are the Executives in Charge for COMEDY CENTRAL.
