The New York Comedy Festival will be presented by Carolines
on Broadway, NYC & Company, Alliance, Comedy Central & WABC-TV.
Carolines on Broadway was the training ground to many of today's top comedians, so the anniversary celebration is a homecoming to those comedians who were given their start in the business by the "Queen of Comedy" Caroline Hirsch.
Native New Yorker Caroline Hirsch first opened Carolines as a cabaret in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood.
Neither hiring a babysitter nor pushing Caroline in a wheelchair while maneuvering a grocery cart was practical, so Drew Ann Long gave new meaning to the phrase "necessity is the mother of invention" and designed a custom cart that would allow her to shop with all of her children freely.
In 2012, Caroline was named a National Youth Ambassador for Easter Seals, an opportunity that gave a greater platform for her story and the cart that bears her name.
Drew Ann and David Long's journey began in 2000 when daughter Caroline
was born with multiple disabilities.
