Comedian Kevin Hart continues to be on his hot streak as we discovered this morning that he will lead the list of comedic performers for the New York Comedy Festival taking place this November, along with Marlon and Shawn Wayans. Check out the press release below;

NEW YORK, NY (August 8, 2012) – The New York Comedy Festival (NYCF), in association with COMEDY CENTRAL, today announced its 2012 line-up, that will feature some of the industry’s biggest stars performing in the city’s most prestigious venues, including The Apollo Theater, Carnegie Hall, The Beacon Theatre, Madison Square Garden, and Town Hall, among others, from Wednesday, November 7 – Sunday, November 11.

Kevin Hart returns to The Festival to become only one of a handful of comedians ever to headline the Madison Square Garden arena when he brings his Let Me Explain Tour to MSG on November 10. Hart shares the rare accomplishment of headlining the famed arena with Bob Hope, George Burns, Eddie Izzard, Chris Rock, Andrew “Dice” Clay and Dane Cook, who in 2006 for the New York Comedy Festival performed two shows in one night.  HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher returns to the Beacon Theatre on November 10, to share his unique and hilarious views on the presidential election.  Award-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams returns to the festival with a lively conversation with Emmy® Award winning director David Steinberg (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Weeds) at the 92nd Street Y on November 11.
