THE JOKE SQUAD
Stephen Colbert, Wanda Sykes, Maria Bamford, W. Kamau Bell, John Mulaney, Whitney Cummings — chances are good that you like at least one or two if not all of these comedians, and you like them a lot. The savvy people behind the New York Comedy Festival (produced by Caroline’s on Broadway in association with Comedy Central) know this. Which is why they’ve put all of these comic geniuses on the schedule of this five-day event, and many others who aren’t too shabby, either — like tonight’s “Stand Up For Heroes” show with Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Bruce Springsteen (not doing comedy, we presume/hope), Roger Waters (ditto), and surprise guests.
