Vulture Festival L.A. Presented by AT&T is back and we’re throwing the coolest poolside party, maybe ever? It’s all happening November 9 and 10, when Vulture Festival returns to the Hollywood Roosevelt. And who’s joining us there, you ask? Well, we’re glad you did, because this is literally our first lineup announcement and that is why we’re writing it. Just to whet your appetite, we’ll kick this off with a reunion of Party Down. That’s right, we’ve got Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Megan Mullally, Jane Lynch, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen, Ken Marino, along with series creators John Enbom, Dan Etheridge, and Rob Thomas coming together for the first time in a decade. We’re also reuniting the cast and creators of One Day at a Time to get you ready for the Alvarez family’s big debut on PopTV. Now, get ready to really start screaming, because we’re also going to be hanging out with cast members from I Think You Should Leave, The Good Place, Pen15, getting the inside scoop on the art of performance from Elisabeth Moss, and getting to know almost too much about Netflix’s You. Okay, now you should stop screaming, because you’ll need your voice for our poolside screening and singalong of A Star Is Born. Check out the entire lineup below, and keep an eye out for even more announcements to come!

Movies

A STAR IS BORN POOLSIDE SCREENING PRESENTED BY VIRGIN VOYAGES

Hey! What? Just wanted to take another look at you, A Star is Born!

There are a lot of movies about the highlights and pitfalls of fame, but none of those movies have original pop songs by Lady Gaga and original rock songs by Bradley Cooper. (Also none of those movies have electrical tape eyebrows and Sam Elliott’s deep voice.) Join Vulture’s resident A Star is Born stan Hunter Harris for a special poolside screening and pop-rock singalong of Jackson Maine and Ally’s greatest hits.

THE CO-STARS/CO-CREATORS OF PEN15 IN CONVERSATION OVER AIM

It’s Y2K. Cue the dial-up modem noise. You’ve got mail. Who is that who wants to chat?

OMG it’s the creators and stars of Hulu’s puberty-comedy Pen15, Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine. That’s right, the duo will be interviewed the only way appropriate for a show about turn of the millennium teenage life - instant messenger. Hear how they worked to get the era of the show correct and how they pulled from real life experience, while also watching their honed chatroom skills.

Comedy

I THINK YOU SHOULD LEAVES FOCUS-GROUP SKETCH: LIVE ORAL HISTORY

All he wanted was a “too small” steering wheel and a car that was “stinky.” Is that so wrong?

The result was one of the most beloved sketches in recent history. And at Vulture Festival, we’ll gather the geniuses behind it to discuss how they caught lightning in a bottle. I Think You Should Leave’s co-creators Tim Robinson and Zach Kanin will be joined by the sketch’s director, Akiva Schaffer. [Dabs in excitement.]

Join executive producers Norman Lear and Brent Miller; showrunners Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce; and cast members Rita Moreno, Justina Machado, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Todd Grinnell as they serve up behind-the-scenes stories from their favorite moments of the past three seasons, and tease what is next for one of America’s favorite families.

Theater

ELISABETH MOSS: ANATOMY OF A PERFORMANCE

Elisabeth Moss is a performer who is never afraid to work up close, taking us from Madison Avenue to Gilead with a look. Now, Moss comes to Vulture Festival to walk us through what Vulture’s Emily Yoshida called an “oscillating, energy-devouring performance” as Becky Something in the 2019 drama Her Smell. Find out what it takes to inhabit the worlds Moss consistently brings to life for us.

COMEDIANS YOU SHOULD AND WILL KNOW SHOWCASE

Vulture’s annual Comedians You Should and Will Know list highlights those comics who we believe, in our professional opinion, will soon become household names.
