Boasting what's got to be one of the greatest comedy lineups in recent memory, Funny or Die's summer comedy tour Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival features sets by stand-up superstars Louis C.K. (Louie) and Sarah Silverman (The Sarah Silverman Program) -- and that's just the beginning. Also performing at this massive comedy fest at PNC Bank Arts Center are some of the biggest names in comedy today including Dave Attell, Hannibal Buress, Jeff Ross, Chris D'Elia, Michael Che and more. There's even a second comedy stage headlined by true-life oddball -- and hilariously neurotic stand-up comedian -- Brody Stevens (Comedy Central's Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!) plus a freak show, music by DJ Trauma, tasty treats and libations -- and a "roaming troupe of misfit performers."

The USO was founded in Times Square on February 4th, 1941 in response to a request from President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The USO provides a host of programs and services that promote the morale and welfare of our troops and their families — from entertainment to family support services to personal emergency assistance and more. The USO of Metropolitan New York operates two service centers in the New York City area, which offer a ‘home away from home’ for U.S. military personnel and their families.
