Bay Street Theater will host an all-new line-up for the fifth iteration of this season’s “All Star Comedy” series on Saturday, March 16, at 8 p.m. The series, now celebrating its 13th season, will follow up its previous all-but-sold-out performances this season with special guest comedians Pete Cestaro, Marc Gerber and Harris Stanton.

Pete Cestaro is a bi-coastal comedian spending his time between New York and California, mostly because he hates the winter and loves the ocean but also because of the proximity to the country’s best comedy clubs. He’s hosted College Sports Television and AMC’s Date Night, and is a member of the Bridgehampton Softball Hall of Fame.

Marc Gerber is a born and bred New Yorker who has been performing stand-up for over 10 years in New York City and beyond. Gerber’s first album, “Avid Indoorsman,” debuted at number one on the iTunes comedy charts and is still in rotation on multiple SiriusXM comedy stations three years after its initial release. Amazon Music recently featured a track from Gerber’s album on its Very Funny playlist, along with giants like Dave Chapelle and Bo Burnham. Gerber was recently featured as a comic to watch on “Access Hollywood,” promoting his second album which was recorded as part of the New York Comedy Festival. Equally adept at satirizing the State of the Union and the state of his own affairs, Gerber has been featured on CNN’s “Running Mate” podcast, “The Steve Harvey Show” and MTV, just to name a few.

Harris Stanton is an American comedian based in Brooklyn. Stanton attended Spartanburg Methodist College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. In 1996, he was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 52nd round of the major league amateur draft. He decided to pursue comedy leading to an almost two-decade-long career. Stanton tours nationally and internationally including appearances on European television. He has been featured on BET’s “Comic View,” “Premium Blend” and “Comics Unleashed.” He recorded a comedy DVD with Patrice O’Neal, “Elephant in the Room.” And his own comedy album “Naive Innocence” was in the top 10 for two weeks on the iTunes stand-up comedy album charts.

“All Star Comedy” has been led by New York-based comedian Joseph Vecsey since its 2010 inception. Vecsey has been selected as one of Comedy Central’s Comics To Watch, has toured with Adam Sandler, David Spade and Rob Schneider, and has worked as co-producer on Sandler’s Netflix special, “100% Fresh.” He is also known for producing Netflix’s “The Wrong Missy” and “Home Team” in which he also co-stars. The most recent films he’s written jokes for and produced are Adam Sandler’s “Murder Mystery 2” and “You’re So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah”.

Tickets are $37 and $47 in advance ($47 and $57 on the day of the show) available at baystreet.org or 631-725-9500. Bay Street Theater is on Long Wharf in Sag Harbor.
