BYT invites you to The 9th Annual Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival, curated by Tig Notaro! Join us for a special edition of Big Terrific! In 2008, Gabe Liedman, Jenny Slate, and Max Silvestri started a weekly comedy show in Brooklyn that was eventually declared the city’s best by the likes of New York Magazine and Time Out. Last year, Big Terrific sold out back to back shows at the New York Comedy Festival. In addition to bringing other comics to new light, the trio have crafted big careers of their own.
