Best comedy events in NYC: Critics’ picks

Upcoming NYC comedy events
The Time Out New York Comedy Showcase
Time Out New York’s brand new monthly show launches tonight with some of the biggest names on the NYC comedy scene.
Harmon Leon in Yank Me
Comic and writer Leon has one verb associated with him more than any other: infiltrate. He has made his way into being a clothed extra in a porn film, the Christian Wrestling Federation and countless other odd places in the name of messing with people—and for a good story. He tells them all tonight.
The stand-up and actor best known for his roles in The Office and Hot Tub Time Machine hits the stage to show off his hilarious and often musical talents.
Lewis came kvetching back into the public eye with Curb Your Enthusiasm, but his self-deprecating recriminations have always been faintly audible somewhere. He wrote a book, managed to mark 100 appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman and has toured regularly. Take a bath in his neuroses and come away feeling cleaner yourself.
