Today is all about festival announcements!
After a year off of live shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic, today the New York Comedy Festival announced its return this fall. The dates for the festival will be November 8th through the 14th.
“We’re thrilled to be able to reunite fans with their favorite comedians again as New York City continues on the road to recovery,” said Caroline Hirsch, founder and owner of the New York Comedy Festival and Carolines on Broadway. “In this 17th year of the New York Comedy Festival, we celebrate the varied and diverse talent – both up-and-coming and established stars — who continue to elevate the comedic landscape and deliver the laughs and joy that we all need now, more than ever.“
“Our venue partners across the city have suffered tremendously over the last year, and so this year, we are committed to helping to bring them the business and patronage that they need, welcoming fans from across the country for a long-awaited week of laughter and unrivaled entertainment,” Hirsch continued, talking about the partnership with other venues around the city.
The lineup will be announced on August 16th, but tickets and more information can be found on the festival’s website.
