NEW YORK, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Comedy Central's Jokes.com and the New York Comedy Festival will present the first online live streaming stand-up show from Carolines on Broadway on Wednesday November 3rd at 9:30 p.m. ET. Comedian Bobby Lee will host the show which will include performances by Joe Mande, Kurt Metzger, Morgan Murphy and Donnell Rawlings, among others.
Jokes.com's live coverage of the show begins at 9:30 pm ET from backstage and the green-room prior to the main event at 10 pm ET. Comedians will field questions from fans watching the live streaming event via Twitter and Facebook in between sets. The show will be streamed un-cut and uncensored.
"We are excited to be able to bring the first live streaming event from a club that has seen a lot of firsts!" says Caroline Hirsch, founder of the Festival and owner of the famed Carolines on Broadway. "We wanted to be able to include fans who are not able to make it to New York City for the shows and Jokes.com is a great partner to make this happen."
Jokes.com Live will be made available for purchase as a digital download-to-own on iTunes after the show airs on November 3rd. In addition to the stand-up portion, the play list will also include a rare behind-the-scenes peek inside the green room at Carolines on Broadway, as remote cameras follow performers and capture their pre-show antics backstage.
