Are you one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch for 2010? Meet the lucky few at Carolines for the NYCF

This summer, Comedy Central announced it would put on its own "Comics to Watch" showcase of up-and-comers at the New York Comedy Festival in November.

ComicstowatchWell, that time is now. Or rather, Wednesday evening.

Comedy Central's inaugural "Comics to Watch" showcase of new talents will be hosted by Christian Finnegan, with the spotlight put on the following stand-up comedians:

Adam Newman

Lamont Price

Harrison Greenbaum

Sara Schaefer

Ben Kronberg

Ali Wong

Josh Fadem

with special guest James Smith

The intent of "Comics to Watch" is for Comedy Central to show support for comedians who have not yet appeared prominently on the network, and showcase them to the rest of the industry. Many of them already have been featured in one way or another here on The Comic's Comic. 

Comics to Watch takes place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010, at Carolines on Broadway as part of the New York Comedy Festival.
