New York Comedy Festival Adds Brooklyn Show and Panels with Late Night Writers

The New York Comedy Festival has announced a slew of additions to its 2015 line-up, including its first Brooklyn show as well as panel talks with the writers from “The Tonight Show” and “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.”

Taking place at Brooklyn’s Kings Theater, “Comedy Central Live” will include stand-up from Hannibal Buress and performances by Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, John Mulaney and Jeff Ross, with more unannounced talent coming. The show is set for Nov. 13.

The next day, “A Sit-Down With The Tonight Show Writers” will bring Jimmy Fallon’s writing team together to discuss their technique and style for putting on the NBC show. Also on Nov. 14, a panel called “Keepin It 100: An Evening With The Creative Team of The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore” will feature Willmore and the team behind the show.

Comedian Lewis Black is also on board for a public talk with “Lewis Black In Conversation,” a look at his approach to comedy and the persona he created along with it.

Also in the festival’s line-up is Bridget Everett and the Tender Moments, Craig Robinson and the Nasty Delicious and the finals of New York’s Funniest Stand-Up Competition.

Presented in association with Comedy Central, the 2015 New York Comedy Film Festival runs Nov. 10-15.
