Joe Mande hosts a release party tonight for his first book "Look At This F*cking Hipster" at Totally J/K

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] 7:00 pm ($5): Joe Mande celebrates the release of his new book Look At This Fucking Hipster with Wyatt Cenac, Reggie Watts, BEEAAAANNSSS, and more at Totally J/K Presents The Book Release Show

[FREE] 7:00 pm to midnight: Five free hours of improvisation in The PIT’s Super Free Wednesday

[FREE] 8:00: NYC stand-ups Emily Epstein, Vicki Ferentinos, Danny Leary, Matt Rohr, Roger Aylward, and Aww Shucks performing at this free weekly show hosted by Sharon Spell: Shrink

[FREE] 8:30 pm: Sharp stand-ups Ali Wong, James Patterson, Greg Johnson, and Jarrod Harris performing at this free weekly comedy show at Brooklyn’s Cameo (behind Lovin’ Cup) hosted by Jenny Slate, Gabe Liedman, and Max Silvestri: Big Terrific

[TOP PICK] 9:30 pm ($5): One of the finest comedic storytelling shows in the country, in which brilliant writer/performers—who tonight are Adam Wade, Chris Gethard and his brother Gregg, Andrea Rosen, Jon Gabrus, and wonderful host David Martin—tell tales that are brutally honest and utterly hilarious, with tonight’s theme “Siblings:” The Nights of Our Lives

[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
