Carolines on Broadway and Time Out New York are excited to announce a new monthly stand-up comedy series, the Time Out New York Comedy Showcase. Click here to purchase tickets and check out Time Out New York‘s blurb about the new monthly showcase below:

“See the hottest comics in the city at the brand new Time Out New York Comedy Showcase, a new series curated by the editors of Time Out New York. The event takes place at legendary comedy club Carolines on Broadway on the last Wednesday of every month.

Join us March 25 as we kick off the series with a night of fun that’ll have you laughing till your face hurts. Hosted by the hysterical Phil Hanley, the lineup features four of the most sought-after stand-ups in NYC: the awesomely sharp-tongued Bonnie McFarlane (the writer and director of the movie Women Aren’t Funny), whipsmart NYC comedy lynchpin Ted Alexandro (LouieEntourage), the affably thought-provoking Gary Gulman (a veteran of every late night network comedy show out there) and the relentlessly energetic Michelle Wolf (a writer and performer on Late Night with Seth Meyers, whom you may recognize as Grown-Up Annie).”

After rumors of yet another cancellation, it was announced earlier today by USA Today that NBC’s Last Comic Standing will return for another season later this year with new host Anthony Jeselnik and judge Norm Macdonald, both of whom headlined Carolines on Broadway in 2014. Jeselnik will replace season eight host J.B. Smoove while Macdonald will fill former judge Russell Peters shoes in season nine. Season eight judges Rosanne Barr and Keenan Ivory Wayans will return to their roles and Executive Producer Wanda Sykes will continue her role behind the scenes.

Last Comic, which returned in 2014 after a three years off the air, will feature six less episodes than last season. Season nine will also feature celebrity guest appearances and a new head-to-head segment, according to USA Today.

Throughout the years, Last Comic Standing finalists and winners have seen a great deal of success following the show. Former winners of Last Comic Standing include upcoming Carolines headliners Rod Man and Iliza Shlesinger. Another future Carolines headliner, Craig Robinson hosted season seven of the show in 2010.
