Founded in 2009 and produced in collaboration with Grammy nominated comedian Tig Notaro, the festival has featured such laughter heroes as Jim Gaffigan, Ira Glass, Sarah Silverman, Jonathan Van Ness, 2 Dope Queens, Bill Burr, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Amanda Seales, Cameron Esposito, Janeane Garofalo, Nick Kroll, Chelsea Peretti, Rob Corddry, Reggie Watts, Nick Offerman, John Hodgman, Michael Ian Black, and dozens more, descending on DC for a long weekend like no other in the comedy world. In addition to the nightly show offerings across multiple venues (including 9:30 Club, Kennedy Center, Lincoln Theatre and more), BYT also plans special events for the comedians and custom experiences across the four days, when truly anything can happen. 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of this comedy + friendship project.
