The New York Comedy Festival, now in its 12th year, announced its 2015 lineup on Monday, and comedy lovers in the Big Apple won’t be disappointed.

The NYCF, presented in association with Comedy Central, will expand from five to six days this year, running from Nov. 10–15 in some of the most celebrated venues in New York City — with some of the biggest names in comedy.

Closing night at the festival ought to be a huge draw, with a Judd Apatow and Friends event at Carnegie Hall and Trevor Noah, who will be taking over for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show starting in September, performing at The Town Hall.

Other noteworthy performers include Kathy Griffin, Billy Crystal, Patton Oswalt, and Sarah Silverman. Nathan Fielder, John Leguizamo, and Iliza Schlesinger will all make their NYCF debut. The full lineup can be found at the festival website.

“Performing at Carnegie Hall is a dream come true,” Apatow said in in a news release announcing the lineup. “Not for me but for some foreign 12-year-old violinist. I’m sure it will be great!”

Tickets go on sale to the public on Aug. 17.
