This year New York Comedy Festival’s comics to watch have the push of Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco behind them. While the event has existed at the festival for the last 8 years, with the fest’s new title sponsor being TBS, the network brought in O’Brien and his team to put their comedy expertise into the mix and bring us some new talented young comics.
The selected comics will perform at a Comics To Watch showcase at Carolines comedy club on November 11th at 6pm. Pick up tickets here.
