Ricky Gervais, Bill Maher and Tracy Morgan will topline the New York Comedy Festival set for Nov. 4-8.
Comedy Central will tape several standup specials from John Jay College during the fest, which takes place at more than 10 venues in Gotham, including Carnegie Hall. Lineup of specials will be announced in late summer.
It’s the sixth year of the fest, which is produced by Carolines on Broadway and United Entertainment Group.
On performing at Carnegie Hall, Gervais said, “It’s just down the road from my apartment. I can walk to work. (I won’t walk obviously. I’ll take a limo, but I could walk if I had to.)”
Approximately 150 comedians are scheduled to perform. Tickets go on sale Aug. 5.
