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] [$] [DISCOUNTED] 7:00 pm & 9:00 pm & 11:00 pm (FREE TICKETS if you reserve in advance by calling (212) 260-2445 and mention HyReviews.com, but there’s still a 2-drink min. per person): Ted Alexandro (one of the very finest stand-ups in the country; David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, two Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials; frequently opens for Louis C.K.), Nikki Glaser (co-star of MTV’s The Nikki and Sara Show; Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central Half Hour; podcast You Had to Be There), Big Jay Oakerson (Comedy Central Presents, Louie, HBO, Showtime, MTV, IFC), and more performing at the only comedy club in the East Village: Eastville Comedy Club

[TOP PICK] [$] 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm, 8:45 pm, 10:30 pm, and 12:15 am ($20-$24 per show, plus 2-item food/drink min.): Tonight’s lineups include the hilarious Ali Wong at every show, SNL’s Darrell Hammond at 7:00 and 8:00, and Dave Attell at 12:15 am, with all shows at Comedy Cellar (117 MacDougal Street, between 3rd Street & Minetta Lane) except for the 8:00 pm show at Village Underground (130 West 3rd Street, off Sixth Avenue): Comedy Cellar Friday

[FREE] 7:00 pm: Andy Sanford (Adult Swim’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force; member of The Beards of Comedy) tries out new material through Saturday at The Creek upstairs theatre in Queens’ Long Island City: Week At the Creek: Andy Sanford

7:00 pm ($8): Sketch comedy set in the Old West at The PIT upstairs theatre: Outlaw, Kansas

7:00 pm ($5): At The Magnet, Kevin Cobbs & Alessandro King perform sketch comedy, some of which is set in old-time Hollywood, and tonight are joined by Branson Reese: Listen, Kid!

[TOP PICK] 7:30 pm ($10): Stone Cold Fox is the only sketch troupe (vs. improv troupe) to ever be honored with an ongoing spot on the prestigious UCB Chelsea weekend schedule. It’s earned this slot because its writers (who include stellar comics Brandon Gulya and Silvija Ozols) are terrific, and its cast is superb: Brandon Scott Jones, John Murray, Molly Lloyd, Leslie Meisel, Connor Ratliff, and Johnathan Fernandez. Tonight is the debut of an all-new Halloween themed sketch show. Chances are it’s awesome: Stone Cold Fox: Stone Cold Spooks

[TOP PICK] 7:30 pm ($5): Riley Soloner (enormously likeable rising star; MTV, The Chris Gethard Show), Violet Krumbein (30 Rock, Delocated), Nate Smith (Inside Amy Schumer, Happy Endings), Natasha Vaynblat (Namaste), Dandy Darkly (Edinburgh Fringe Festival), and Matt Starr performing character bits at UCB East hosted by Justin Tyler and Michael Hartney: Characters Welcome

[$] 7:30 pm ($15 at the door or $16.52 online): The charming Jenn Dodd demonstrates her skills at transforming into multiple extreme characters in this production that pretends Jenn’s neglected to appear for her own one-woman show. The hour doesn’t really hang together as an emotionally satisfying journey, and Jenn might benefit from working with a writer or tough editor to beef up her scripts, but she’s a performer worth keeping an eye on. If you’d care to check this out, tonight is your last chance at Stage Left Studio, 214 West 30th Street (off Seventh Avenue), on the 6th Floor: No Show: A One-Woman Show

[MEGA-TOP PICK] [$] 8:00 pm ($15): Tony Award-winning playwright/lyricist Greg Kotis (Urinetown) has written “a collection of seven short plays that explore love, sex, truth, sex, money, sex and justice.

[TOP PICK] 9:00 pm ($10): Cipha Sounds (Hot 97, Chappelle’s Show) thought it would be cool if a hip-hop star told tales and then improvisors made up scenes based on them. This monthly show is the result, with a “secret” music celebrity “mesmerizing the crowd with amazing stories and linguistic darts to spark the creativity of some of the best improvisers in NYC,” the latter being Chris Gethard, Anthony Atamanuik, Brandon Gardner, Phil Jackson, and Abra Tabak at the UCB East theatre: Take It Personal: The Hip-Hip Improv Show

[TOP PICK] 10:30 pm ($10): Superb improvisors Craig Rowin, Matt Fisher, Sue Galloway, Dan Klein, Brian Faas, Matt Moses, and/or Conner O’Malley—who this year defeated The Stepfathers and thoroughly crushed another troupe at Cage Match before losing by a single vote—make up scenes about an audience member’s legal dispute at the UCB Chelsea theatre: The Law Firm: Law & Disorder
