Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, Bill Maher, and Aziz Ansari are among the comedians who will bring laughs to this year’s New York Comedy Festival. The city’s most historic venues, including Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, and the Apollo Theater, will be booming with laughter from Nov. 7-11.

Kevin Hart’s return to the festival will put him in a select group of comic legends — including Bob Hope, George Burns, and Eddie Izzard — to headline at Madison Square Garden. “I can’t even find the words to describe what I’m feeling right now!,” Hart said in a press release. “I’m honored to join a group of comedians that will go down in history because of their performances at The Garden! God is good!”

Adam Carolla, Patton Oswalt, Marlon and Shawn Wayans, Rob Delaney, Jim Gaffigan, Artie Lange and Brian Regan will complete the all-star line-up.
