“Comics to Watch” is an annual showcase featuring a wide range of diversely talented young comedians selected by Comedy Central to identify the best new stand-up comedians from multiple cities across the country. The showcase is an effort to help launch the careers of the next generation of comedians by putting them in front of industry executives and comedy fans. “Comics to Watch” is an important step in the development process at Comedy Central with several performers from past “CTW” showcases having gone on to make various more appearances on Comedy Central including “The Half Hour” which for many of the comedians, is their first solo stand-up special.  Those selected will perform on the “Comics to Watch” showcase at Colossal Clusterfest in San Francisco in June 2017.
