Ansari, CK, Regan, Swardson, McHale, Cho, Hart, O’Donnell, Iglesias, Jobrani headline 2010 NYCF

The 2010 New York Comedy Festival won't be updating its website until Tuesday morning, but tickets will go on sale Wednesday for several of its headlining shows, which the festival announced tonight on its Facebook Fan page.

You can figure out the headliners from my headline. Louis CK already had told me he was playing Carnegie Hall in November, so seeing him on the schedule isn't a surprise. Joel McHale playing Carnegie, however, is one. It'll be interesting to see what Rosie O'Donnell has to say for herself these days, whether Margaret Cho's show is all stand-up or a mix of comedy and music, and whether Carolla's shows at Carolines are more stand-up or podcasty.

Here is the schedule as it stands. Carolines and the NYCF will unveil more shows and performers in September. The festival runs from Nov. 3-7, 2010.
