Go Backstage at the 2016 New York Comedy Festival

It's cool — you're with us.

Last week, a crazy amount of comedians rolled through NYC for the annual New York Comedy Festival — a weeklong series of live performances chock-full of political satire, autobiographical humor and dick jokes.

Take a behind-the-scenes peek at some of the comedians after they crushed onstage. Think of it as a backstage pass — only, you know, slightly less awesome.
