The South by Southwest festival is right around the corner, one month away to be exact. And while SXSW–one of the biggest festivals in the country–still only touts itself as a film/music/interactive festival, stand-up comedy has always managed to sneak its way into the fest like, well, someone who can’t afford to buy a pass. Well, Austin has taken note, and the Moontower Comedy Festival is taking advantage of SXSW’s delay in announcing this year's full lineup.

From April 25-28, the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Fest will spread out across 12 venues in Austin, TX with more than 200 performances from over 60 comedians. This week's additions to the 40 acts that had already been announced include Andy Kindler and John Mulaney. They join a list of familiar names like Seth Meyers, Aziz Ansari, Hannibal Buress, Maria Bamford, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Steven Wright. The lineup also includes some Texas comedy titans like Brendon Walsh, who appeared on John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show last year, and Live at Gotham alum Bryan Gutmann, Paul Varghese, and Lucas Molandes.

Early bird tickets sold out in three hours, but presale and VIP passes are still available online. You can also follow the fest on Facebook and Twitter to find out when more performers are announced.
