BAM and IFC announce the lineup for the Oct. 24 installment of Get It Out There: Comedy by BAM & IFC. Beginning at 9 p.m. (bar opens at 8 p.m.) in BAMcafé (30 Lafayette Ave), the event features Phil Hanley (CBC Radio One’s "The Debaters," Just for Laughs festival in Montreal), Joe Zimmerman (John Oliver New York Standup Show, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival semi-finalist) and Sheng Wang (Comedy Central Presents Sheng Wang, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham), plus a special guest. Curated by Caroline Creaghead (Creaghead & Company), the night will be hosted by Kara Klenk (host of "If You Build It" at UCB East, Time Out New York "Joke of the Year" nominee).
Started in 2012, this monthly comedy showcase—free and open to the public—encourages comics to experiment recklessly with humor by testing out fresh material and probing the depths of their twisted souls for new forms of funny. Past guests have included Sarah Silverman, Colin Quinn, Judah Friedlander, and Jon Glaser, with surprise guests dropping in at several events.

Get It Out There continues on Nov. 21 and Dec. 19, with a rotating roster of comedians.
