Very Big Very Asian Comedy Festival is a NYC based curated festival of some of the best AAPI comedians in the industry along with up-and-coming comics you don't want to miss. This MUST-SEE multi-day event is the refreshing festival we all need, just in time for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! There will be Stand-Up Comedy and Roast & Honey Roast Battles! With this festival, we are focused on three things:
Comedy, Community and Connections.
