The New York Comedy Festival has just added Amy Poehler, Jim Gaffigan, Pete Holmes, Seth Rogen and over 60 additional shows to its long weekend’s schedule. Some old favorites of the festival, such as Comics to Watch and the New York’s Funniest Stand-Up competition finals will return as well as several panel discussions with the creative teams from popular shows. The 11th incarnation of the event will include discussion panels with the staffs of Late Show with David Letterman , Inside Amy Schumer and hit web series-turned-TV show Broad City. Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk will celebrate the release of his book A Load of Hooey by making a special performance on Nov. 9 at the Gramercy Theatre. There are just too many shows to list them all here so to see if your favorite comedians are performing and when, check out the New York Comedy Festival’s website at nycomedyfestival.com.
