The annual New York Comedy Festival is returning this fall, and as usual it’s bringing a whole slew of high-profile shows to NYC. The biggest shows include Ricky Gervais chatting with John Hodgman at Town Hall for a Paley Center event, Kevin Hart at Madison Square Garden, Aziz Ansari at the Apollo Theater and Carnegie Hall, Bill Maher at the Beacon Theater, and “David Steinberg and Robin Williams Talking About Nothing That Important” at the 92Y. Those are the first big events announced, but expect a whole shitload more in coming days, as the festival generally hosts events at practically every comedy room in the city. Other comedians set to perform include Artie Lange, Patton Oswalt, Brian Regan, Rob Delaney, Jim Gaffigan and Marlon and Shawn Wayans. Want tickets? The general presale starts Monday right here.
