Adam Ferrara

The broad and animated Ferrara, who’s been a frequent stand-up guest on several late-night talk shows, may also be recognizable from his stint on Rescue Me. He digs into his family and home life with gusto, and makes great use of his New York accent as he does it.

  1. Flappers Comedy Club
  2. Fri Mar 1 - Sat Mar 2

Lachlan Patterson

  • Price band: 1/4

This tall (and funny) drink of water hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, and has toured across North America and is a regular at Festivals, from Montreal, Aspen, Vancouver and Halifax. You may have caught his set on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, but his live stuff feels much more relaxed, and is ultimately much funnier.

  1. Comedy & Magic Club 1018 Hermosa Ave, between 10th St & Pier Ave
  2. Until Wed Mar 6

Kathleen Madigan

  • Price band: 2/4

Madigan, who now has both a Comedy Central and an HBO special under her belt, is proof that a straightforward, hardworking stand-up doesn't have to be a throwback. She creatively blends matter-of-fact observations with confessional tidbits while scrutinitzing everything she happens upon with a well-honed sarcasm. One of her biggest fans is Lewis Black, who made her a regular on Root of All Evil.

Jimmy Pardo

  • Price band: 1/4

Once called the "comic's comic," Pardo credits include everything from bit parts in sitcoms like That '70s Show to opening for Conan O'Brien at his late-night tapings. When it comes to comedian podcasts, his award-winning "Never Not Funny" ranks second only to Ricky Gervais' and has featured guests like Sarah Silverman and Jon Hamm. But he truly shines when interacting with audiences; experience the funnyman's routine firsthand and you may even end up as the butt of one of his jokes.

Bill Burr

With his crackling energy, simmering rage and trademark “uninformed logic,” Burr is simply one of the best comics working. As his specials Why Do I Do This? and Let It Go attest, Burr is at his best when positing notions that no sane person could possibly agree with (at least not in public), and then winning the crowd over, joke by joke and laugh by laugh. He’s been nabbing more parts in films lately (such as the recently released Stand Up Guys with Al Pacino), but it hasn’t stopped him from maintaining a tour schedule.

  1. Largo at the Coronet
  2. Wed Mar 19

Maronzio Vance

  • Price band: 1/4

Maronzio Vance, who was on Last Comic Standing and will be on the new Fox reboot of In Living Color, has an easygoing manner that makes the funny stories in his stand-up feel completely relatable.

Reggie Watts

  • Price band: 1/4

Freewheeling, beat-boxing musical-comedy madman Reggie Watts blows minds and steals hearts whether he's opening for Conan O'Brien, appearing on Comedy Central in his own special or doing ten minutes in a LA bar. Tonight he plays a proper headlining gig.

Nick Kroll

  • Price band: 1/4

Kroll, currently seen on FX's The League, is a ridiculous and ridiculously funny character actor. If you've ever seen him as Bobby Bottleservice or on The Oh, Hello Show with John Mulaney, you know how his mind works when he's making comedy on his own terms. In 2013, he unveils his new Comedy Central series, Kroll Show.

Kevin Smith + Jason Mewes: Jay and Silent Bob Get Old

  • Price band: 1/4

Jersey's own self-made writer, director and family man Kevin Smith dishes out life advice in his new book, Tough Sh*t. Among the choice bits he proffers: the reasons to accept Ferris Bueller as one's personal savior, and the differential between the fun of eating and the fun of being fat.

  1. Laugh Factory 8001 W Sunset Boulevard

Sarah Silverman

  • Price band: 1/4

Need any further evidence that comedy's lowbrow is becoming accepted in the hallowed halls of high culture? Silverman will bring her acerbic, off-color act to Largo at the Coronet.

Garfunkel & Oates

  • Price band: 1/4

Musical comedy duo Garfunkel & Oates—a.k.a. Riki Lindhomme and Kate Micucci—expand quirky, everyday observations about pregnant ladies and opening presents into cute and clever ditties. They’re also naughty enough to ensure that their sweet voices and uke-and-guitar combo transcend the twee.

Chris Hardwick

  • Price band: 1/4

The host of G4's Web Soup, a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately, a writer for Wired magazine and a member of nerd-rock band Hard 'n Phirm, Chris Hardwick maintains a busy schedule. This March date in Anaheim finds Hardwick collaborating with special guests Jonah Ray and Matt Mira for a live edition of his popular Nerdist podcast.
