Time Out says

Fan-favorite Asian Comedy Fest (ACF) is officially back for a third installment this May 6 and 7 at two popular local comedy clubs.

The first day of the festival will focus on stand-up comedy acts at Stand Up NY on the Upper West Side and the second will highlight other forms of comedy—from sketch to musical—at Caveat on the Lower East Side.

Although the full festival lineup has yet to be announced (more on that by April 1), confirmed talent already includes Yuhua Hamasaki from RuPaul's Drag Race, Karen Chee of Late Night with Seth Meyers and Chinese-American comedic duo, podcast hosts and YouTube creators Andrew and David Fung.

Can't make it? Worry not. Parts of the festival will also be livestreamed.
