    Ari Shaffir

    Host of the Skeptic Tank podcast, co-star of that Keeping Up With the Joneses movie, also acclaimed for his Double Negative on Netflix, this Shaffir is, we reckon, definitely someone you want to see.
    Sept. 20-22. Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 7:30 & 10:30pm. $20-25.

    Johnny Taylor

    Sardonic and personal, Johnny Taylor elevates the art of self-deprecating storytelling with his debut album, Tangled Up in Plaid on Stand Up! Records. Live and onstage, the same Taylor elevates the Cheese Palace with a set of his best, after Jered McCorkle opens.
    Sept. 21-22. Fri., 9 & 11pm; Sat., 9pm. $10.

    Sorry, Closed For Comedy

    It's a mystery: How can this show, hosted by Danny Goodwin and Justin Hicks, be free … when it's featuring Chris Cubas, Enzo Priesnitz, Amber Bixby, Ashley Overton, and Nathan Ehrmann? Damned if we know – but keep your magnifying glass away from that horse's mouth, Sherlock.
    Fri., Sept. 21, 8:30pm. Free.

    Top Comedy Spot on Airport

    Yes, there's Sugar Water Purple on Wednesday nights. And this Thursday features Friends For Now, a daring supergroup of improv, and then the sketch shenanigans of Pendulum. Friday brings Movie Riot and the laugh-inducing ladies of Loverboy and that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar. Then there's Saturday, with the Dave Buckman-directed Roast of St. Nick and the love-stinks larking of Missed Connections ATX, followed by a gathering of that mysterio-hilarious Midnight Society. And Sunday's got a Stool Pigeon spieling up the laughs for you, and – see website for more.
