Kevin Hart and Jerry Seinfeld are among the A-listers scheduled to perform at Comedy Central’s inaugural “Colossal Clusterfest” in early June, Rolling Stone reported Tuesday.

The San Francisco gathering “will feature stand-up, sketch comedy, podcast recordings, music performances and interactive attractions across five stages,” according to Rolling Stone. While billed on its website as an “all ages festival,” Clusterfest cautions that it won’t censor its talent. “Your kids may leave with unexpectedly expanded vocabularies and knowledge,” warns an FAQ page.

And while some comedians are quite adept at playing off of drunken hecklers, that won’t be tolerated at Clusterfest. “This behavior will not be tolerated and, if necessary, will result in ejection from the show. It’s easy. Just don’t be an [expletive].”

Comedy Central also plans to air a 90-minute special hosted by comedian and “Nerdist” podcaster Chris Hardwick that should include highlights from the festival as well as interviews and behind-the-scenes segments, Rolling Stone reported.
