Watch comedians audition in NYC to be among “Comics to Watch”

Comedy Central is producing a “Comics to Watch” showcase for the second consecutive year this November as part of the New York Comedy Festival.

Comedy Central probably already does have a short list, but it’s not short enough just yet, so they’re holding two auditions this Wednesday and next (Aug. 10 and Aug. 17) at Carolines. You can watch these stand-ups sweat it out for free, though, by calling Carolines at 212-757-4100 and mentioning the promo code “CTW” when reserving your seats.

So you can watch the Comics to Watch before everyone else does, and even make up your own list. Then tell us how you think Comedy Central did in November!
