Hosted by Hidden Agenda, the inaugural LOL Comedy Honors takes over Brooklyn, New York’s Grand Prospect Hall on August 24 to celebrate the genre of comedy and its brightest comedic gems. This event is where the entertainment industry will pay its respects to legendary comics of the past while also honoring some of today’s leading comedians.
The first year ceremony dedicates itself to side splitting comedy legends that pioneered the art of comedy, while also honoring the comedians of today who’ve utilized their talents and creativity to entertain millions.
