Whether or not Comedy Central‘s recently announced Colossal Clusterfest, a massive comedy and music festival set to takeover San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium this summer, can help the cable channel beat Netflix remains to be seen. Though judging by the event’s initial lineup, which includes the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart and Pete Davidson, there’s a good chance Colossal Clusterfest would put on a good show. Especially since one of the new additions added to the official schedule includes a Wayne’s World live read conducted by Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the classic film’s release date, Jacobson and Glazer will lead a full panel of yet-to-be revealed “special guests” through a live reading of the original Wayne’s World script. Colossal Clusterfest’s latest addition is part of a collaboration with the folks behind the beloved San Francisco Comedy Festival (or “SK Sketchfest”), which took place back in January. No word yet on whether Mike Myers, Dana Carvey or anyone else from the original cast will make a special appearance, but who knows? Wouldn’t it be great if the original Wayne and Garth read for Rob Lowe and Tia Carrere’s parts, respectively?

Of course, the Wayne’s World live read isn’t the only exciting thing Colossal Clusterfest has added to the lineup. Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show) and T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley, The Gorburger Show) will perform stand-up alongside the comics who were initially announced. Miller will also stage a live version of his Gorburger program with comedians Nick Vatterott and Eliot Glazer. Rachel Bloom, Fred Armisen, Chris Gethard and Ron Funches have also joined up with Comedy Central and the festival organizers to put on “80’s-themed comedy sets,” various improv shows and a comedy food show titled “Lunches with Funches.”

The full festival lineup will be made available to be public on Tuesday, April 18th at the festival’s official website. Single day tickets will also go on sale next week.
