The program is free and open to the public. Curated by Caroline Creaghead (Creaghead & Company), each Get It Out There comedy night features a rotating roster of comedians; the debut lineup features Wyatt Cenac (Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Mike Lawrence (TBS' Conan), Damien Lemon (Comedy Central's Russell Simmons Presents The Ruckus, MTV2's Guy Code), and Giulia Rozzi (VH1's Stripped Stories), hosted by Jared Logan (John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show).

We're thrilled to have IFC as our partners as we move into this new creative arena for the institution."

"As IFC continues to define its brand as a home for sharp, smart, experimental comedy, it makes perfect sense to create a partnership with BAM," said Blake Callaway, IFC's Senior Vice President of Marketing.
