Jade Presents and Captain Morgan have announced the 2nd Annual Fargo Comedy Fest will return to the Fargo Theatre on Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th, 2020. The two-day fest will feature nationally known comedians Natasha Leggero, Moshe Kasher and Joel McHale.
Natasha Leggero and Moshe Kasher will co-headline the Friday, March 6, event. Leggero first catapulted to fame as host of MTV’s The 70s House and her stint on Chelsea Lately. Her observational comedy is noted for pop culture influences. Leggero is best known for her stand up career and has appeared on late-night shows such as Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Late Late Show with James Corden. She was also regularly featured as a panelist on Chelsea Lately and also on shows like “@midnight.” She and her husband, Kasher, also released “The Honeymoon Stand-up Special” on Netflix last year.
In addition, Leggero co-created and starred in the Comedy Central series Another Period. Her other acting roles include Dice, A Million Little Things and Ugly Americans.
Actor/comedian/writer Moshe Kasher has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most in demand and highly regarded talents. He is the author of the 2012 memoir Kasher in the Rye: The True Tale of a White Boy from Oakland Who Became a Drug Addict, Criminal, Mental Patient, and Then Turned 16.
Kasher has written for several films, series and specials including, Wet Hot American Summer, Zoolander 2, Another Period and the Comedy Central Roasts. He co-hosted the popular podcast The Champs and is the host of The Hound Tall Discussion Series on the Nerdist Network. In 2012, he released his first one-hour special, Moshe Kasher: Live in Oakland.
Joel McHale will headline the Saturday, March 7, event. McHale is one of the most sought-after comedians and actors in the industry. He was most recently seen in The Happy Time Murders as well as Netflix’s A Futile & Stupid Gesture opposite Will Forte, in which he played Chevy Chase, his former Community co-star. McHale also recently hosted The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale on Netflix, a half-hour topical series that took a sharp, absurdist look at pop culture and news from across the globe. In 2015, McHale wrapped the 12th and final season of E! Network’s The Soup, in which he satirized pop culture and current events. He is best known for his starring role on the hit comedy series Community, which ended its sixth season on Yahoo! after five seasons on NBC.
He previously starred in The Great Outdoors on CBS, where he played a renowned adventure reporter who took a desk job in the digital department of a magazine. He was also seen on Fox’s revival of The X-Files, where he played a conservative news anchor. Other starring feature roles include A Merry Friggin’ Christmas opposite Robin Williams, the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced supernatural thriller Deliver Us From Evil, the Warner Bros’ romantic comedy Blended alongside Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, Seth MacFarlane’s comedy smash Ted, David Frankel’s The Big Year, Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant as well as What’s Your Number? starring Chris Evans and Anna Faris. In 2014, McHale hosted the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington D.C. He also hosted the 2015 ESPYS on ABC. In the fall of 2016, McHale released his first book through Putnam Penguin, Thanks For The Money: How to Use My Life Story To Become The Best Joel McHale You Can Be, which is part memoir, part self-help guide.
Amber Preston will appear Saturday night. Amber has appeared on national commercials for Buffalo Wild Wings and Booking.com, at numerous festivals from Sketchfest to Gilda’s Laughfest (where she was named “Best of the Midwest”), and even on Marc Maron’s “Five Comedians to Watch” list for Vulture. Along with hosting Los Angeles shows The Cut and Punchline Punchout, she recently recorded her debut album Sparkly Parts on Stand Up! Records.
