Buy Tickets $13.75 - $18.75 $27.50 - $37.50

Donnell Rawlings has a resume that would make almost any comedian jealous. He's made dozens of TV appearances, including BET's Comic View, HBO's Def Comedy Jam and Comedy Central's @midnight, but he's probably best known for his work on Chappelle's Show, where he played such iconic characters as Ashy Larry and the jheri curled hater Beautiful. He even served as the hit show's third season's co-host. Now, the comic once called a "very funny guy [who] makes it look natural and easy" by Dave Chappelle comes to Atlanta Comedy Theater to present his hilarious takes on relationships, race relations and everything in between.

Self-proclaimed "tragic singer, horrible dancer and surreal raconteur" Dina Martina is back in D.C. with a hilarious new show, Fine Avec Me!. According to John Waters, the patron saint of all things trash-tastic, Dina "goes way beyond drag into some new kind of twisted art." With her signature shaky voice and even shakier lipstick application, the Seattle-based drag star delights in showing audiences just how good "bad" can truly be. This cult comedy evening at the Howard Theatre promises plenty of addled anecdotes, questionable song choices, dance missteps, unsightly costumes and viral-worthy video.

Buy Tickets $5 $10

Stand-up comedy and improv are usually two separate types of comedy that you won't see in the same show, but Unexpected Productions' Piggyback brings them both together so you can enjoy two types of comedy in one hilarious night. First, a professional comedian will perform a stand-up routine, then talented improvisation artists will create a narrative story in a particular genre of film or literature. The story created will be inspired by the material from the stand-up act. Piggyback has been featured at Bumbershoot, the Washington Comedy Festival and the Highlarous Comedy Festival.

The Kipling Hotel: True Misadventures of the Electric Pink '80s picks up where Don Reed's lauded hit East 14th leaves off in the '70s. As the awkward son of an Oakland pimp who is struggling to work his way through college, Reed attempts to make a living as a stripper and a gigolo, but ends up with the not-so-glamorous job as a live-in waiter at a retirement hotel. It wasn't all bad, though. While serving breakfast to the elderly, various drifters and drug addicts, Reed mined comedy gold for this new solo show at The Marsh Berkeley. A longtime warm-up comedian for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Reed's immersive and hysterical stories about his Oakland upbringing earned him the Performance of the Year award from NPR's storytelling show Snap Judgment.

Crowd work, wherein a stand-up draws inspiration from the audience to craft jokes in the moment, often results in thrilling spontaneous comedy. Drafthouse Comedy Theater's Who's In Here? is a show built almost entirely on crowd work, with host Tim Miller hosting a new lineup of comics from D.C. and beyond every month, each of whom earns big laughs by working the room and improvising in the moment. Spontaneous and interactive, no one is safe from being part of a joke -- which is of course part of the fun.

Few comics are as fearless and intelligent as Bill Maher. As one of the country's premier political satirists and gadflies, he's been making the hypocritical and the ignorant squirm for decades, first as a stand-up star, then as host of ABC's Politically Incorrect and, most recently, as the host of HBO's Real Time. His ability to crack up audiences while making them think has earned him scores of fans and 38 Emmy nominations. Maher has also written five best-sellers and collaborated with director Larry Charles (Borat) on Religulous, which poked fun at organized religion and went on to rank as one of the highest-grossing documentaries ever. But Maher hasn't lost his stand-up touch -- he still performs at least 50 dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold-out theaters across the U.S. Don't miss Maher when he comes to the stage of Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater.

Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare: Drunken Cast Takes on the Bard

Buy Tickets $8 $15

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and now the cast has brought the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Shakespeare knowledge and head down to The North Door, because this is the Bard as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

Improv comedy is tough enough when performers are just making up a plot from an audience suggestion, but Chicago's Uptown Underground cast is upping the stakes by creating the opening and closing night of an entirely new musical. They'll be borrowing ideas from the characters, styles and themes of Broadway musicals, but they literally won't know where they're going till you, the audience, give them a suggestion for a title of a never-before-seen musical. And you'll appreciate those classic tropes when you see them acted out, because Buzzed Broadway encourages you to drink along with the cast as they take from Sondheim, Kander, Ebb and many others. Be sure to pay attention, or you just might miss your cue.

After Words: Hilarious & Unusual Improv

Buy Tickets $7.50 $15

Get ready for a night of laughter, action and intertwined improv scenes. You will decide the title of the show after all of the improv scenes are played out. After Words explores interactions after they happen. Each hilarious scene is independent of each other with no agenda. You, the audience, will then define the meaning of each scene after seeing it and come up with a word to describe it. All the independent scenes will be combined to create the theme of each night. The theme of the show and the title will only become clear for everyone in Seattle's Unexpected Productions' Market Theater ... After Words.
