Brooklyn & New York, NY - April 11, 2012 - BAM (www.BAM.org) and IFC (www.IFC.com) join forces to present Get It Out There: Comedy by BAM & IFC, a new comedy showcase that 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.

Get It Out There debuts Wednesday, April 25 at 9pm (bar opens at 8pm) in the BAMcaf� (30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY) and returns six times throughout the year, on May 30, June 27, September 12, October 3, November 7, and December 5. The program is free and open to the public. Curated by Caroline Creaghead (Creaghead & Company), each Get It Out There comedy night features a rotating roster of comedians; the debut lineup features Wyatt Cenac (Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Mike Lawrence (TBS' Conan), Damien Lemon (Comedy Central's Russell Simmons Presents The Ruckus, MTV2's Guy Code), and Giulia Rozzi (VH1's Stripped Stories), hosted by Jared Logan (John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show). IFC will support Get It Out There on air and online via 30-second vignettes and a dedicated microsite, www.ifc.com/get-it-out-there.

"BAM has always had a commitment to showcasing what's next" says BAM Executive Producer Joseph V. Melillo. "The contemporary alternative comedy scene is highly inventive, genre-bending, and very much in line with our mission of presenting our adventurous audiences with the best in live performance. We're thrilled to have IFC as our partners as we move into this new creative arena for the institution."

"As IFC continues to define its brand as a home for sharp, smart, experimental comedy, it makes perfect sense to create a partnership with BAM," said Blake Callaway, IFC's Senior Vice President of Marketing. "Get It Out There will be a live comedy night that allows us to take the creative risks that both BAM and IFC are known for, and also provides us with an amazing opportunity to discover and promote great comic talent."
