NEW YORK – Ricky Gervais (Ger-VASE') Tracy Morgan and Bill Maher (MAR') will headline the sixth annual New York Comedy Festival.
Organizers announced Wednesday that Gervais and Morgan will perform at Carnegie Hall and Maher will play Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. Specific dates for the performances weren't announced; the festival will be held Nov. 4-8.
Gervais said that it was an honor to headline the festival and to play Carnegie Hall, which he noted was near his apartment.
Said Gervais: "I can walk to work. I won't walk, obviously. I'll take a limo. But I could walk if I had to."
More performers will later be announced for the festival, which expects to showcase more than 150 comedians.
