Ever since the festival was created, it has been giving the prestigious yearly Andy Kaufman Award. This award is meant for the comedian who reflects the most fresh, original and novel content in his or her humor alongside courage. In 2004, Suzanne Whang won the award, Kristen Schaal won it in 2005, and in 2006 Reggie Watts won the award, and Brent Weinbach won it in 2007 and in 2009 Blaine Kneece won it. Furthermore, the festival has teamed up with the celebrated The People’s Choice Awards for the known “Opening Act” Contest that aids in choosing a particular standup comedian who is an amateur. This amateur standup comedian performs in the opening act of one of the most famous headlining acts.
The New York Comedy Festival, which is now its ninth year, is known to bring the best comedians live on stage in its weeklong run. Over the years, some of the most esteemed comedians have performed in this event. The festival has taken place at prominent venues such as the Lincoln Center, Town Hall, The Hammerstein Ballroom, Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, The Beacon Theatre and Caroline’s on Broadway. Moreover, it has managed to present a unique sketch and improvised comedy acts at The UCB Theatre along with various panel based discussions at The Paley Center for Media and also at 92Y Tribeca and 92nd Street alongside several other venues. The festival initiated an event called the “Stand-Up for Heroes” show in 2007 in order to benefit The Bob Woodruff Foundation, which has showcased amazing performances by Conan O’Brien, Tony Bennett, Robin William, Bruce Springsteen, Ricky Gervais, Regis Philbin and Jerry Seinfeld.
This spectacular festival has not only brought the finest comedians to perform in New York, it has also managed to create a platform for aspiring comedians. When the 2011 festival took place, Louis C.K. recorded and later on released his very own standup special that was called Louis C.K. Live at The Beacon Theatre. This coverage was later released to audiences around the world. A huge portion of the proceeds from this event went to charity. When the 2012 festival happened, Kevin Hart recorded his movie called Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain at Madison Square Garden. Hart was seen performing in two amazing shows in just one night at the venue. Dane Cook was the first comedian to have recorded his show which was titled as Dane Cook: Vicious Circle Live when the 2006 festival took place.
