five free hours of improvisation in The PIT’s Super Free Wednesday (7:00 pm-midnight),

[$] unintentionally hilarious amateur videos via the Found Footage Festival (8:00 pm),

NYC stand-ups John Morrison, Sean Crespo, Raquel D’Apice, Mara Herron, Adrianne Iapalucci, and Jason Saenz at the free Shrink (8:00 pm),

[TOP PICK] an hour-long play made up on the spot by razor-sharp, passionate improvisors Scott Adsit (30 Rock, Moral Oral) and Christina Gausas (Conan O’Brien, The Colbert Report) at Adsit & Gausas (9:30 pm),

[$] a former regular on Comedy Central’s Tough Crowd and on Howard Stern, Nick DiPaolo at Carolines (10:00 pm),

[TOP PICK] and a free, laid-back, and occasionally magical variety show where virtually anything can happen on a School Night (11:00).
