Laugh Riot

Can’t decide who to see at this year's New York Comedy Festival? Here’s some of the the big names performing Nov 9-13.


As seen on TV.   

Stand Up for Heroes
The Beacon Theater; 11/9 at 8 p.m.; 2124 Broadway., nr. 74th St.; 212-465-6500
Nothing warms the heart like famous people banding together for a good cause. Jim Gaffigan, Ricky Gervais, Jon Stewart, Bruce Springsteen, and more do just that in this benefit show for the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

Louis C.K.
The Beacon Theater; 11/10 at 7:30 p.m.; 2124 Broadway., nr. 74th St.; 212-465-6500
If you're not familiar with the Emmy award-winning comedian maybe you'd like to check out his movie masterpiece Pootie Tang or, you know, his Vulture-approved, eponymous television show.

Wanda Sykes
The Town Hall; 11/10 at 7:30 p.m.; 123 W. 43rd St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-840-2824
You never know what’s gonna come out of the mouth of this Curb Your Enthusiasm star and comedy vet, but it’s always fun to find out. For a taste you can check out her latest HBO special I'ma Be Me.

Michael Ian Black
Bowery Ballroom; 11/10 at 9 p.m.; 6 Delancey St., nr. Bowery; 212-533-2111
Black brings his act to a music venue, which seems appropriate for the cult-comedy rock star. Hope for the Mike and Tom Eat Snacks host to invite some guest stars along with him, like his podcast partner Tom Cavanaugh.

Tracy Morgan
The Beacon Theater; 11/11 at 8 p.m.; 2124 Broadway, nr. 74th St.; 212-465-6500
The hilarious 30 Rock star isn't really known for his restraint, or being safe for children or old people. Consider yourself warned.

Sarah Silverman and Friends
BAM Howard Gilman Opera House; 11/12 at 8 p.m.; 30 Lafayette Ave., nr. Ashland Pl., Ft. Greene, Brooklyn; 718-636-4100
The pottymouthed Jesus is Magic star takes some time off from blasting Rick Perry to host a show with some of her funny cronies.
