Kyle Kinane

Phenom LA comedy star Kyle Kinane makes a rare NYC appearance tonight at Sweet

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:

[FREE] 6:00 pm to midnight: Six free hours of improvisation in The PIT’s Super Free Wednesday

[TOP PICK] 8:00 pm ($5): Simon Amstell demonstrates why he’s a star in the UK with a sly and sublimely hilarious one-man show that’s distinctly different from most US comedy sets, and well worth experiencing: Simon Amstell: Do Nothing

[FREE] 8:00 pm: NYC stand-ups Ray DeVito, Katina Corrao, Jay Bois, Chris Doucette, Cary Prusa, and Subhah Agarwal performing at this free weekly show hosted by Sharon Spell: Shrink

[TOP PICK] [FREE] 8:30 pm: John Mulaney (writer/performer for Saturday Night LiveConan O’Brien, Comedy Central Presents, VH1’s Best Week Ever; for John’s great bit on Weekend Update, please click here), Jessi Klein (fresh, unique, deliciously organic comic who’s one of the best stand-ups in the country; staff writer for Saturday Night Live; Comedy Central, VH1, NBC, CNN, Adult Swim), Tammy Hart & Zachariah Durr, and Jay Larson performing at this free weekly comedy show at Brooklyn’s Cameo (behind Lovin’ Cup) hosted by Gabe Liedman and Max Silvestri: Big Terrific

[TOP PICK] 9:30 pm ($5): “Pop culture obsessed Billy Eichner takes you on a fun-filled 30 minute journey through his twisted and topical celebrity-fueled world,” and Nicole Shabtai performs a one-woman show about “illustrious a 13-year-old socialite and notorious Upper East Side private schooler we all love to hate,” in the double-bill Billy Eichner Goes Pop! and Citizen Rothstein

[TOP PICK] 10:30 pm ($5): Kyle Kinane (amazing visiting LA comic in town to tape his Comedy Central Presents special; for video samples, please click here and here), Aasif Mandvi (correspondent for The Daily Show), Andrea Rosen (Comedy Central’s Stella; co-host of Variety SHAC), Roger Hailes (Chappelle’s Show, MTV, VH1), Ted Greenberg (Emmy-winning former writer for David LettermanThe Complete Performer), and more performing at Arlene’s Grocery (95 Stanton Street) hosted by the wonderful Seth Herzog (Jimmy Fallon, VH1): Sweet

[TOP PICK] [FREE] 11:00 pm: Host Justin Purnell (The Colbert Report) providing as many as a dozen guests packed into 75 minutes performing stand-up, improv, sketch, and occasionally acts that defy categorization. The level of talent can vary wildly, but for some (like me), that’s part of the laid-back fun; and this is often one of the most amazing comedy shows in town. Come support the experimentation, and periodic magical surprises, that this uniquely organic rollercoaster of a show makes possible—and don’t forget to toss $1 in the bucket on your way out: School Night
