If you still haven't managed to snag tickets to "The Late Show," this year's New York Comedy Festival is finally giving you a chance to see Stephen Colbert in action.

The CBS host will join Trevor Noah, Nicole Byer, Bill Maher and a buzzy lineup of other top comics for the annual weeklong event, which runs this year from Nov. 4 through Nov. 10.

"Nothing beats being able to perform stand-up comedy in New York to some of the best audiences in the world, and that's what this festival is," Noah, who will headline Madison Square Garden, said in a statement.
