[TOP PICK] 8:00 pm ($5): A double-bill of vibrant improv troupes: Neil Casey & Anthony Atamanuik make up an entire feature film as The Two-Man Movie; and Nicole Byer, Sasheer Zamata, and Keisha Zollar form a surprise breakout hit as all-gal troupe Doppelganger

[TOP PICK] 9:30 pm ($12): Top comics and comedic storytellers—who tonight include a blowout lineup of Michael Showalter, Heather Lawless, Ali Wong, Matt Oberg, and Todd Hanson—joining brilliant sketch comic and storyteller Kevin Allison (The State) to share tales on tonight’s theme “Eureka!” at one of the finest storytelling shows in the country: Risk!
