Hilarious & sexy rising star Adira Amram sings tonight at Comic Book Club

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] 8:00 pm ($5): Comic book creators Michael Kaluta & Elaine Lee (Starstruck), and brilliant rising star sex goddess & musical guest Adira Amram joining in on a lively & hilarious discussion about four-color pop culture at Comic Book Club

[TOP PICK] 8:00 pm ($5): Witty writers offering delightfully silly lectures about “The Proper Prank” (e.g., The Day I Gave My Brother Appendicitis) at Charles Star’s Brooklyn comedic show Adult Education

8:00 pm to midnight ($5): Four full hours of improv for only five bucks—tonight featuring UCBT house troupes Scootch, Ragnaröck, Badman, Robber Baron, and DeCoster, followed by UCBT advanced students improvising a movie—all at Harold Night

[TOP PICK] 9:00 pm ($5): Comedy giants Rob Riggle, the Sklar Brothers, and Julian McCullough, plus acclaimed actor Josh Charles, and more performing at The Slipper Room for the LES weekly show hosted by the wonderful Seth Herzog (Jimmy Fallon, VH1): Sweet

9:00 pm (no cover, 1-item min.): Sharp NYC stand-ups Jamie Lee, Charlie Kasov, Paul Oddo, Jay Welch, Jason Saenz, Michael Lawrence, James J. Oakes, and Jay Hoskins telling tales about their first time—with anything they choose—performing in Ochi’s Lounge at SNC: The Virgin Chronicles

[FREE] 11:00 pm: Free open-mic stand-up show that’s seldom much fun for audience members but is a nice opportunity if you want 4-5 minutes to test out your comedy material on stage: Bring It

Please note: Due to scheduling conflicts, Pete & Jessi are taking this week off from Punch Up Your Life. This hit Tuesday show will return on November 10th.
