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:

7:00 pm ($5): “Where there is a stage and a piano, she will be there. Where there are strangers with embarrassing stories, she will be there. Where there is a group of people willing to sit and watch someone make up songs, she will be there. A one-woman musical improv journey through the lives of the audience. You tell the story, Rebecca Vigil sings the soundtrack:” The Vigilante

7:00 pm ($5): John O’Donnell tells lots of comedic stories in his long-running one-man show The O’Donnellogues

[$] 8:00 pm ($20 & 2-item min.): Musical improv beatbox genius Reggie Watts is among the guests for this comedic holiday celebration at the elegant Comix Comedy Club hosted by a YouTube star who enjoys playing oddball characters: John Roberts’ Holiday Show

8:00 pm to midnight ($5): Four full hours of improv for only five bucks—tonight featuring UCBT house troupes Bastian, DeCoster, Badman, The Law Firm, and Penthouse Riot followed by UCBT troupe Wildhorn! improvising a musical—all at Harold Night

8:30 pm ($5): “Jon Bander has always believed himself great at something. These are the moments where he found out what that something wasn’t. A one-show about being comfortable in your own skin by a guy who, despite glaring flaws, has always loved himself:” Delusions of Bander

[TOP PICK] 9:00 pm ($5): Star pseudo Christian acoustic duo God’s Pottery (Last Comic Standing), Jon Friedman (Jimmy Fallon, The Rejection Show), Nick Stevens (VH1, Bravo, AMC, E!), and “special surprise guests” performing at The Slipper Room for this LES weekly show hosted by the wonderful Seth Herzog (Jimmy Fallon, VH1): Sweet

9:30 pm ($8): “A 17-person middle school talent show created and performed by two people—Jo Firestone and Dylan Marron—who like themselves more now that they’re older. A comedic tribute to the best three years of our lives, and a comedic play for anyone who ever thought it couldn’t get any better than prank calls and slow-dancing:” Ridgefield Middle School Talent Nite

[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
