Trevor Noah, Tracy Morgan, Tig Notaro to Perform at New York Comedy Festival

Trevor Noah, Tracy Morgan, Marc Maron and Tig Notaro are all on tap to perform as part of the 2016 New York Comedy Festival. Running Nov. 1-6, the festival will present more than 200 comedians in 60 shows across all five boroughs.

Morgan, Maron and Notaro are among those who will headline the 13th annual festival, all performing at Carnegie Hall.

“I’m very excited about returning to the New York Comedy Festival this year,” said Morgan.  “I can’t wait to get on stage at the legendary Carnegie Hall to perform in front of my family, my friends and my home town fans.”

Noah (“The Daily Show”) joins Dane Cook, Chris D’Elia, Patton Oswalt and Tim Minchin for a performance at the Beacon Theater. Bill Maher will perform at the Theater at Madison Square Garden, while Bridget Everett and T.J. Miller will put on a show at Town Hall and Cameron Esposito performs at NYU Skirball Center.

Eric Andre will take the stage at Carolines on Broadway for a four-night engagement.

“The festival continues to present the performers at the forefront of comedy, while giving audiences an opportunity to enjoy these great artists in many of the city’s most iconic venues,”  said Caroline Hirsch, New York Comedy Festival founder. “With the presidential election taking place the week after the festival, I’m sure there will be no shortage of hilarious commentary on all of the political happenings.”

Tickets go on sale Aug. 15 on the New York Comedy Festival website.
