This week’s issue of Time Out New York is all about the hilarious women taking over New York’s comedy scene. To mark the kickoff of the New York Comedy Festival today, we’re showcasing some of the city’s funniest women, letting you know where you can see them perform (including Time Out New York’s Women of Comedy Showcase) and giving you the lowdown on what’s it like to do what they do. Also, we chat with Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson about the upcoming new season of the show and their shared distaste for the word “comedienne.”
Elsewhere in the magazine, Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman lays out a guide for surviving the rest of the New York Comedy Festival, and Christopher Nolan talks about making his mind-bending new film Interstellar (our film critic gave it five stars). You can also discover the newest places to go in the rapidly changing Crown Heights (Berg'n, Pelzer's Pretzels), and find out where to sample some of the season’s best fall cocktails. (Pouring Ribbons). Buy a round and toast the funny women in your life!
