Not only is John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show returning to Comedy Central this year for a third season, but he and the network are taping the showcases this weekend in NYC.

So if you’re in or near the city from March 10-12, 2012, you can ask for tickets to sit as part of the live studio audience as Oliver and his friends make funny.

Last year, I asked John Oliver how a comedian gets into his inner circle (or that of Comedy Central) to make it into his televised showcases.

But who’s going to be on the show this year, you ask?
