‘Comedy Central Park’ Returns


Comedy Central will renew its ‘Comedy Central Park’ event Friday, June 20 at 8 p.m., giving fans an opportunity to take in a free night of live stand-up acts in New York City’s Central Park.

Comedians Stephen Lynch (pictured) and Mike Birbiglia will headline this year’s event at Central Park’s SummerStage and comic Julian McCullough will also be a featured performer.

“Comedy Central is excited to once again offer the people of New York a night of free comedy in the city's most legendary outdoor venue,” Mitch Fried, the network’s senior vice president, promotion marketing, said in a statement. “We appreciate how New Yorkers have embraced ‘Comedy Central Park’—so we've decided to make it an annual event!”

The all-comedy network is currently seen in more than 95 million homes nationwide.
