The New York Comedy Festival turns 15 this November, and its quinceañera will celebrate with headlining performances by Bill Burr, Jimmy Carr, David Cross, Desus & Mero, Dan Harmon’s Harmontown, Gabriel Iglesias, Jim Jefferies, Anthony Jeselnik, Jo Koy, Bert Kreischer, Marc Maron, Jason Mewes, Tracy Morgan, Conan O’Brien, Yvonne Orji, Bryan Safi and Erin Gibson’s Throwing Shade, and Jonathan Van Ness and Antoni Porowski.

NYCF, in partnership for a second consecutive year with TBS, will run Nov. 5-11, 2018, with more than 200 comedians in more than 100 shows across the city. From the largest, most prestigious venues in the city — Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden and the Beacon Theatre — to comedy clubs and small theaters throughout Manhattan and over to Brooklyn.

TBS will take over the new Sony Hall in Times Square. The TBS Stage lineup of shows Nov. 8-11 will be announced in September.

“The New York Comedy Festival has reached a major milestone, as we celebrate our 15th year this November. We continue to grow in both number of comedians and shows, and are excited to announce this first phase of talent,” said Caroline Hirsch, founder and owner of the New York Comedy Festival and Carolines on Broadway. “I think comedy fans will be quite impressed with the variety of programming come November. As we continue to grow our relationship with TBS, we’re confident that this year’s festival will deliver an unparalleled entertainment experience.”

“We’re excited to be back for another year of partnership with the New York Comedy Festival,” said chief marketing officer of TBS and TNT, Michael Engleman, “the collaboration with the festival is a terrific platform to celebrate our fans, connect with new audiences, and provide unique opportunities for our ad partners. And of course there’s no better showcase for a deep roster of TBS talent.”
