Carolines on Broadway’s New York Comedy Festival is coming to town and New York is ready, planning FIVE spectacular days, over ONE HUNDRED shows, nearly TWO HUNDRED performers. This schedule is updated almost daily with new shows and performers being added all the time so for final confirmation, always check newyorkcomedyfestival.com.
The New York Comedy Festival has a different vibe from other festivals. It takes place throughout the entire city which makes it somewhat less like a comedy summer camp- but that kind of centric approach wouldn’t really work for New York City. The festival takes you through some of New York’s best known comedy clubs, legendary theaters, and favorite places that New Yorkers enjoy comedy all year around. With so many headliners, shows, events, talks, panels, podcasts and even game shows taking place, it can be difficult to decide where to spend your time. It’s okay, we’ve got you. Stay tuned for our Editors Picks list later this week, giving you the our #1 choices for the best New York Comedy Festival experience. And follow #NYCF on Twitter for everything festival related.
