The lineup for the annual New York Comedy Festival has been announced.

Breakout comedian of the year, Joel McHale, is being touted as the head-headliner.

Other names that will be appearing during the five day festival (November 3-7, 2010) include Aziz Ansari, Louis C.K., Margaret Cho, Gabriel Iglesias, Nick Swardson, Brian Regan, Adam Carolla and Rosie O’Donnell(!!!).

It’s nice to see the comic community recognizing Carolla. No one’s done more to promote comedians in general in the last couple of years. And his pioneering podcast has shown dozens of comedians another promotional channel they can exploit.

And I don’t know if Rosie O’Donnell has done much standup of late, but it will be interesting to see what her material is like after all these years of mega-stardom.

Tickets go on sale Monday, August 9 through the New York Comedy Festival website.
