Last fall, the rock duo Tenacious D came up with a wacky idea. They brought together all sorts of comedians and musicians at the Santa Monica Pier and held a day long celebration. They called it Festival Supreme.

The show sold out and was such a big hit, the fellas decided to do it all again this year. Like last year, the event is going to feature some great acts. Margaret Cho, Fred Armisen, Cheech and Chong, and Eagles of Death Metal are on the lineup. But this year's show will be at The Shrine instead and there will be a Circus of Death — like a spooky Disneyland for adults. And this year, Tenacious D — Jack Black and Kyle Gass — say Andy Dick will NOT be getting a backstage pass.

Festival Supreme will be held Oct. 25 at Shrine Expo Hall and Grounds in Downtown LA. See more information at the event website
