Two Thirds Of The Fab Five Headline The NY Comedy Festival
Founded by entertainment mogul Jarrod Moses and comedy champion Caroline Hirsch in 2004, the New York Comedy Festival highlights the best and brightest of the comedy world, often showcasing over 200 performers in over 60 different shows, from good old fashioned stand up comedy to podcasts, panels and more! Stars of Netflix mega smash reboot 'Queer Eye For The Straight Guy' Jonathan Van Ness and Antoni Porowski join a star-studded line-up of headliners to host a special one-night-only variety stand up show as part of the prestigious festival.
Inspired by Julia Child, Anthony Bourdain and Jacque Pepin, Porowski brings the joy of cooking and love of food to the popular life and style show, with the aim of telling flavorful stories that connect the stomach and the heart. Alongside Porowski, Van Ness, the show's grooming advisor and co-host of comedy series Gay Of Thrones, garnered an Emmy nomination for his part in the makeover show, which not only bolsters the LGBQT community but shows a different side to the straight men of the south. This dynamic duo's heart, witty banter and upbeat humour is sure to make for a feel-good and fabulous evening filled with laughter, tears and a few indispensable styling tips.
