Huge congratulations to Jenny Slate on becoming the newest cast member of Saturday Night Live!

Tonight’s recommendations for the best in New York City comedy (in chronological order, with top picks noted and shows over $10 marked with $) include:

8:00 pm ($5): Sharp improvisors directed by James Eason “take an audience suggestion and break it into a million funny pieces” in The Deconstruction

8:00 pm ($8): “Pat Shepherd thought he was getting married. He was wrong. Follow his story in the premier of this hilariously heartbreaking one man show:” The Breakup

[TOP PICK] 9:30 pm ($5): Jessica Delfino (back from her UK tour!), Tami Sagher (writer for 30 Rock), Eric Slovin (Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central Presents), and short filmmaker Edmond Hawkins joining the fresh, sexy, and razor-sharp gals of Variety SHAC

[TOP PICK] [$] 9:30 pm ($10 with code SETH online & 2-drink min.): Who but the wonderful Seth Herzog (VH1’s Best Week Ever, Jimmy Fallon, Sweet) would kick off the description of his debut show at Comix as “kind of the night you wish you could have at a comedy club all the time”—effectively pissing at every other show playing at that club? Seth is a dynamic performer and engaging stand-up; plus he’s friends with most of the top comedy talent alive, so there’s no telling who’ll be dropping in for Seth Herzog’s Night of Fun

[$] 10:00 pm ($31.25 & 2-drink min.): A provocative comedy star who’s written for Richard Pryor, Red Foxx, and Saturday Night Live, and performed on Chappelle’s Show and David Letterman, headlining through Sunday at Carolines: Paul Mooney

[TOP PICK] 11:00 pm ($5): Death by Roo Roo tonight facing a challenger of equal brilliance—C, C, & C Improv Factory, the 2007 Season Cage Match Champion—in a battle for audience laughs and votes of such mammoth proportions the gods themselves will be watching Cage Match
