They’ve got to be kidding!
One of the year’s biggest laughingstocks has announced its lineup for the fall, a stand-up set of performers headed by Ricky Gervais, Robin Williams and Wayans brothers Shawn and Marlon.
From Nov. 7 to 11, the ninth annual New York Comedy Festival will present 50 shows featuring 175 comedians, highlighting the city “as the comedy capital of the world,” according to festival founder and Carolines on Broadway owner Caroline Hirsch.
With shows set for Carnegie Hall, the Apollo Theater and other temples of New York culture, the festival lets New Yorkers see big-screen faces up close — including those of Gervais and Williams, who’ll each participate in a “conversation” in front of a live audience. (Gervais will launch the festival with a Nov. 7 talk at Town Hall; Williams, joined by “Curb Your Enthusiasm” director David Steinberg, will speak Nov. 11 at the 92nd Street Y.)
Tickets for Robin and David Steinberg's conversation will go on sale on August 13, right here. There's a pre-sale starting August 8, for which you will need promotional code. This code is: CNYCF
