2014 was a hell of a year for comedy in NYC. The New York Comedy Festival came to wreak havoc on our rib cages; Time Out New York's very own Women of Comedy 2014 show saw the funniest women in the country take over the city; and every night of the week, hundreds of comics worked their guts out trying to make New York audiences laugh their asses inside out. From a year of awesome comedy, we picked the 10 shows that, even in such a talented and crowded field, stood head and shoulders above the rest.
RECOMMENDED: Best of 2014
