This year they are really shooting the works with a gold-standard, rock-solid, pant-shittingly awesome line up. So while you're at the festival, take a break from those dumb bands and thrill to the air-conditioned comedy of, in alphabetical order, James Adomian, Cristela Alonzo, Eric Andre, Maria Bamford, Mike Birbiglia, Jerrod Carmichael, Michael Che, Comedy Bang! Bang! with Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts, David Cross, Kyle Dunnigan, Chris Gethard, Nikki Glaser, Ed Helms' Whisky Sour Radio Hour, Improvised Shakespeare Company, Jared Logan, Bob Saget, and Daniel Tosh.

In a post titled "Starting Mondays in November until Littlefield realizes they've made a huge mistake", Wyatt Cenac, who spent this weekend at Fun Fun Fun Fest, details the plans that will likely drive Gowanus venue Littlefield toward financial and social ruin.
Comedian Wyatt Cenac ("The Daily Show," "King of the Hill") and Producer Marianne Ways ("Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen"), in conjunction with Littlefield, are proud to announce the start of new weekly comedy showcase NIGHT TRAIN WITH WYATT CENAC. Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac, the show will feature comedy from the best local and international stand up comedians, and will at times feature new and established musicians, local celebrities, and occasional surprises that can only be found in Gowanus.Night Train begins today (11/5) at Littlefield with special guests Eugene Mirman, Jessi Klein, Jeffrey Joseph and J.R. Havlan, and tickets are still available. Tickets are also on sale for shows through the better portion of 2012, including on 11/12 with Gary Gulman, Jerrod Carmichael, Seaton Smith, Erin Judge "+ more".
Of course all of this reconfirms the end of Kurt and Kristen's weekly Hot Tub Variety Show at Littlefield, which held its last Monday show in October. RIP to Hot Tub, but we're looking forward to Night Train.
