Time Out says

Returning for its fifth year, the largest and longest running AAPI comedy festival is back with a star-studded lineup that includes Jes Tom (Netflix, Our Flag Means Death), Youngmi Mayer (podcaster, writer, author) Yuhua Hamasaki (RuPaul’s Drag Race), The Fung Brothers (YouTube), and more.

It's not just stand-up, either. Comedians will perform improv comedy and even musical comedy. This year's festival will be held at Sugar Mouse in the St. Mark's neighborhood (47 3rd Ave.) on May 7, 14 and 15. Asian Comedy Fest will also donate a portion of its profits to the AAPI non-profit Welcome To Chinatown.
