  • Initial 2013 New York Comedy Festival lineup announced

    NYCF 2013It’s hard to believe that the New York Comedy Festival will be celebrating its 10th year of operation but that’s happening, and they’ve come up with a stellar lineup for year No. 10 of the festival, which will take over Manhattan from November 6-10. Among the names appearing will be Bill Burr, Whitney Cummings, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Jim Jefferies, Anthony Jeselnik, Bill Maher, Davie Steinberg, Nick Swardson and Wanda Sykes.

    In what’s sure to be a cantankerous, awkward event, and also a highlight of the festival, Larry David will engage in a conversation with David Steinberg, host of Showtime’s Inside Comedy. The festival, which is produced by Carolines on Broadway, will be presented in association with Comedy Central. If you’re a Citi cardholder, you’ll have access to buy pre-sale tickets starting tomorrow, August 7th through August 11th. Tickets for the public go sale for all shows starting Monday, August 12 at 10:00 am. Tickets will be available on the NYCF’s website. Here’s the schedule so far.
