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:

[TOP PICK] 7:00 pm ($5): One of my very favorite comedic couples, the brilliant Mary Theresa Archbold and Pat Shay, performing a new sketch-based play in which they explore love through history to make the title of this show come true: Pat and Mary Save Their Marriage

[$] 7:30 pm ($20 & 2-item min.): A delightful comedic musical duo headlining for one night only at the elegant Comix Comedy Club: Mel & El

[TOP PICK] 8:00 pm ($5): Delightful sketch comedy & musical duo Tim Ellis and Matthew Park debuting what’s likely to be a very fun two-person show: An Evening with Ellis & Park

[$] 8:00 pm ($24.50 & 2-drink min.) A unique comedy star headlining at Carolines for one night only: Gilbert Gottfried

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

[TOP PICK] 9:30 pm ($5): Stellar storyteller & burlesque star Cyndi Freeman (HBO, Showtime, Comedy Central, The Moth, The Liar Show, award-winning one-woman show Greetings From Hollywood) and Mark Sam Rosenthal (Playgirl TV, Comedy Central) tell sexual tales revolving around tonight’s theme “Porn, Porn, and More Porn” accompanied by musical guest Cock Lorge at the best sexy storytelling comedy show in NYC: Margot Leitman’s & Giulia Rozzi’s Stripped Stories

[TOP PICK] 11:00 pm ($5): Improv troupe Classic Masculinity, which two weeks ago did the near-impossible by defeating Death by Roo Roo, tonight faces another formidable challenger, The Brothers Hines (Will Hines and Kevin Hines, who really are brothers) in a battle for audience laughs and votes at the raucous Cage Match
