Because in these tough economic times, who couldn’t use a laugh?

If you’ve been watching the TBS network recently– like I have, because of the baseball playoffs (and Saved by the Bell reruns)– you’ve probably noticed the ads for the upcoming Comedy Festival in Las Vegas.

The three-day festival starts on November 20, and will be held at that cozy venue called Caesar’s Palace. Thursday night’s headliners include ageless wonder Joan Rivers, bad-dancing talk show host Ellen Degeneres, and SNL alum Jim Breuer. Friday night’s show will feature the disturbing Jim Norton, the unfunny Dane Cook, and the drug-test-failing Cheech & Chong. Oh yeah, and someone called Jerry Seinfeld.

The festival’s final day will showcase 30 Rock‘s Tracy Morgan, The Daily Show‘s John Oliver, and noted insomniac Dave Attell. Also, that Seinfeld guy again.
