The New York Comedy Festival runs from November 5th – 11th and is celebrating their 15th Anniversary this year, and as such, it’s going to be big. Expanding to seven days, the NYCF will bring together 200 of the biggest names in comedy including Tracy Morgan, Bill Burr, and Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness and Antoni Porowski, to name a few. Scroll below to find out who else is going.
The festival is kicked off with the 12th annual Stand Up For Heroes event with performers including Jimmy Carr, Eric Church, Jim Gaffigan, Seth Meyers, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Stewart. The event will honor our nation’s post-9/11 impacted veterans and their families, and raise funds and awareness to support the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
Tracy is definitely the highlight of the festival and will perform on Saturday November 10th at The Beacon Theatre.
Jonathan and Antoni will also perform two shows that same day at Town Hall.
Don’t skim the first few days of the New York Comedy Festival either. Bruce Springsteen will sound off the event on November 5th at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
