Brilliant comedic actress Amy Heidt shows off her skill at portraying multiple characters tonight in her one-woman show Dominate Yourself!

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:

6:30 pm (no cover, 1-item min.): The perfect show for short attention spans—open-mic stand-up with 4½ minutes per set and 25 comics crammed into 2½ hours—at John Morrison’s Ochi’s Motel

[FREE] 7:00 pm: Terrific stand-ups & comedic storytellers Brooke Van Poppelen, Dan Allen, Luke Cunningham, Maddog Mattern, and more performing at a free weekly show in the Manchester Pub hosted by Phoebe Robinson: Case of the Mondays Comedy

[TOP PICK] 8:00 pm ($5): Thoroughly wonderful stand-ups Todd Barry, Kumail Nanjiani, Ali Waller, Roger Hailes, and Ann carr performing in the Lolita Bar with producer Liam McEneaney at Tell Your Friends

[TOP PICK] 8:00 pm ($5): Superb sketch troupe Pangea 3000 being ironically self-deprecating, and sketch troupe Sidecar performing bits about the end of the world, in the double-bill Pangea 3000 Sucks and Sidecarmageddon

[TOP PICK] 6:30 pm ($5): Amy Heidt’s one-woman show was one of the very best productions at this past August’s FringeNYC Festival (for my review, please click here); a slimmed-down version plays tonight, along with a try-out for a sketch show, in the double-bill Amy Heidt: Dominate Yourself! and This is About Smith

[TOP PICK] [FREE] 11:00 pm: A blowout gathering of some of the finest comics in the country—tonight including three of my all-time favorites, Anthony Jeselnik, Dave Hill, and Jim Norton—hosted by the wonderful Leo Allen (Saturday Night Live, Conan O’Brien, HBO, Comedy Central) at Whiplash
