Joke of the week

Talented local comics and great out-of-towners sling some of our favorite jokes of the year.

On any night of the week, you can see the city’s funniest women and men get up onstage and do their thing. Half the time, you don’t even have to pay to see it, thanks to all thefree comedy shows in NYC, but if you really can’t get out tonight, here’s some of what you’re missing at the city’s best comedy theaters.
