'The Daily Show' in the park?

John_oliver_2006-1 Shakespeare plays aren’t the only things getting the park treatment.

For those who want a night of entertainment on a grassy knoll without the verbose monologues, “Comedy Central Park” presents “The Daily Show & Friends.” 

Hosted by Lewis Black, the free night of comedy is scheduled to take place in New York’s Central Park on July 21, featuring stand-up performances by “Daily Show” correspondents Wyatt Cenac and John Oliver, series alum Rob Riggle, executive producer Rory Albanese and supervising producer Adam Lowitt.

It’s the fourth year for the event. Past performers include Dave Attell, Stephen Lynch and Gabriel Iglesias. 

But, hey, what about us non-New Yorkers? Perhaps Comedy Central should consider taking this show on the road. What do you think, Show Trackers?
