The full schedule for stand-up comedy and the rest of the festival is available at www.nccomedyarts.com.
"Stand-up at the festival keeps growing and this year showcases that growth. Last year, we had two All-Star showcases with Late Show with David Letterman warm-up comic Eddie Brill. This year we are thrilled to welcome Aparna Nancherla back to the festival and we are really looking forward giving our audiences a chance to see April Richardson, Ted Morris, and other rising comics. Stand-up is always great way to kick-off the festival," said NCCAF Executive Producer Zach Ward.
