Rosie O'Donnell
“The Queen of Nice” will be right at home when she brings her bold wit and bravado storytelling to TC. She’s conquered the stage (“Grease”) and the small (“The View”) and big screens (“A League of Their Own”), and she’s won Emmys like they were going out of style with “The Rosie O’Donnell Show.” A true American original, she’s returned to standup following a major heart attack with new perspectives on parenting, marriage, illness, and celebrity.

Tig Notaro
Hailed as one of the best comics working today, Tig Notaro is redefining comedy with her big-hearted and counterintuitive wit. Her “instantly legendary” set addressing her recent cancer treatments made vocal fans of the likes of Louis C.K. and Sarah Silverman. She’s a regular on “Conan” and “This American Life,” has appeared on “Community” and “The Office,” and made her feature film debut this summer with “In a World…”

An Evening with Stephen Lynch
Whether he’s singing an ode to “queer tattoos,” telling a potential paramour all the things he won’t be doing for her (he ain’t fightin’ no Lion), or lamenting his new vegan lifestyle (“Tofurkey? Tof**k yourself — I want some meat”), Michigan-born, Tony-nominated Stephen Lynch’s unique blend of musically-based comedy has earned him fiercely loyal fans around the world with sold-out live shows, best-selling CDs, and top-rated Comedy Central specials.

Sinbad
One of Comedy Central’s top 100 standups, Sinbad’s larger-than-life persona and genuine good humor have made him one of America’s most beloved comics. You know this Michigan native from movies (“Houseguest”) and TV (“The Sinbad Show,” “It’s Always Sunny”). Keeping it PG (he hasn’t sworn on stage in over 30 years), Sinbad tells jokes his dad “taught him back in the day,” combining showmanship with an optimistic enthusiasm for life.

TJ & Dave
Whether you’re a student of improvisation, a fan of live comedy, or simply interested in human imagination, TJ & Dave will leave you laughing and guessing. These Second City veterans are returning to the festival by popular demand and are widely acknowledged to be living legends in long form improv. TJ Jagodowski (the guy on the Sonic commercials) and David Pasquesi (“Veep, “Angels & Demons”) walk out on stage without characters, dialog or plot, and the result is pure genius.

Mike Toomey
The Chicago Tribune says he’s “one of the funniest & most talented performers ever to work in Chicago,” but to us he is a fest favorite we couldn’t be more excited to welcome back. Toomey’s dead-on impersonations and PG-rated style are perfect for anyone and everyone who can use a really good, hearty, deep-rooted laugh. Just like his popular “TV and Me” one-man show at the 2010 festival, his standup is the answer to the question, “Which show won’t make my grandmother blush?”

Set List: Standup Without a Net
Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad’s critically-acclaimed show (a smash hit at the 2012 SXSW Film Fest) puts a spin on traditional standup showcases: comics are handed never-before-seen topics (like “Detroit Tourism Slogan Planning Committee”) as they step up to the mic, promising an unpredictable and hilarious show, every time. Get your tix early — “Set List” was the surprise word-of-mouth hit at last year’s ComFest. Comedians appearing include Dave Foley, Sinbad, Dan St.Germain, Sarah Tiana, Matt Braunger, and Kirk Fox.
