NEW YORK, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Aziz Ansari, Adam Carolla, Margaret Cho and Louis CK are confirmed to perform at this year's New York Comedy Festival, organizers said Tuesday.

Also on the bill for the five-day festival, which runs Nov. 3-7, are Kevin Hart, Gabriel Iglesias, Luis Jimenez, Maz Jobrani, Joel McHale, Rosie O'Donnell, Brian Regan and Nick Swardson.

They will be joined by more than 150 other comedians performing at more than 10 venues.

"The New York Comedy Festival has become the destination for legendary and rising comedic talent," Caroline Hirsch, founder of the festival and owner of the famed Carolines on Broadway comedy club, said in a statement. "We are excited about this year's programming that features an array of performers that are distinct, visionary and downright hilarious."

"I'm thrilled to give the New York Comedy Festival another try this November," added McHale. "To be playing Carnegie Hall is a milestone in the festival's misjudgment, but for me it is a dream come true."

Tickets for all shows are available through the New York Comedy Festival Web site:
