Watch Comedy Central’s 2012 “Comics To Watch”

Comedy Central continued its recent tradition of hosting its own variation on a “New Faces” showcase during the New York Comedy Festival. Comedy Central calls it “Comics To Watch,” and offers up the entire live show online — in 2012, Owen Benjamin hosted (a late substitute due to the Nor’easter snowstorm that blew into NYC last Wednesday).

The 2012 lineup features Asif Ali, Chris Distefano, Matt D, Kate Berlant, Phil Hanley, Andrew Santino, David Agyekum, Brooks Whelan, Liza Treyger and Hampton Yount. Got 76 minutes of spare time? Then please spare it to keep an eye out for these emerging comedic talents.

Roll the clips!
