The annual festival, featuring 200 comedians in more than 60 shows, runs Nov. 10-15. Other performers on the slate include Margaret Cho, Kathy Griffin, Gabriel Iglesias, Norm Macdonald, Bill Maher, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt and Sarah Silverman.
“Our aspiration for the festival has always been bringing together talent from all over the comedy spectrum, featuring comedic greats and highlighting emerging talent in the industry,” said Caroline Hirsch, founder and owner of the New York Comedy Festival and Carolines on Broadway. “This year’s lineup is no exception.”
“Performing at Carnegie Hall is a dream come true,” said Apatow. “Not for me but for some foreign 12-year-old violinist. But I am sure it will be great!”
Tickets for all shows are available to the general public starting Aug. 17 and can be purchased here. The festival is presented in association with Comedy Central and produced by Carolines on Broadway.
