Comedy Central Park
Central Park Mainstage (mid-park, 72nd St., Manhattan)
Comedy Central Park is back for its 5th straight year to celebrate an evening of FREE comedy with New Yorkers.
This year’s show will star one of the most respected stand-up comedians working today, Jim Gaffigan with special guest John Pinette. Make sure to get there early because Comedy Central Park ends up being standing room only every year!
Jim Gaffigan has proven himself a major talent to a wide range of audiences, achieving accolades and awards for his stand-up comedy, acting, and writing. His clever, quiet style has made him one of the top five most successful touring comedians in the country today with his CDs and DVDs achieving platinum status. Famous also for his numerous appearances on late night’s “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” he is also a noted talent on many comedies and dramas ranging from cult hits such as “Flight of the Concords,” to dramatic roles in all three versions of “Law & Order.”
John Pinette has been entertaining audiences around the world for over twenty years and has enjoyed a long acting career in television, film, and stage.
Comedy Central’s AddressTheMess will return again this year to distribute free reusable tote bags to the first 3,000 attendees and encourage fans to properly dispose of their recyclables.
