The seventh annual South Beach Comedy Festival launches Wednesday with the best possible kick-off event imaginable: Will Ferrell and a special screening of the telenovola parody, Casa Mi Padre.

The laugh fest continues through Sunday with a free stage on Lincoln Road, local acts at Backstage @ The Fillmore, and marque names at the Colony Theater and Fillmore Miami Beach.

Get angry over stupid politicians with Lewis Black, cross your fingers for a Childish Gambino performance by Donald Glover, and hear why Aziz Ansari calls crackers "lame cookies."

Screening is invite-only, but you're encouraged to come gawk at the stars on the red carpet.

Will Ferrell will be on the red carpet outside Lincoln Road's Colony Theater for the screening of Casa Mi Padre. The former SNL comedian plays a Mexican in the telenovela parody, which also stars Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna and Génesis Rodríguez. About time the genre's heaving bosoms and angry generalissimos got the Ferrell treatment.
