There’s no doubt that New York gets a lot of love from the comedy world, but these next couple months are especially loaded. Here are the seven best stand-up comedy shows coming to NYC this spring.

Lisa Lampanelli

April 14 @ The Wellmont Theatre

Hecklers beware! Comedy Central roast queen Lisa Lampanelli is bringing her insult comedy to New Jersey. Her cringe-worthy put-downs are as on-point as they come, so stand clear or you could be her next victim. GET TICKETS

Cameron Esposito

April 15 @ Union Hall

LGBTQueen Cameron Esposito is coming to Union Hall! You know her from her iTunes show Take My Wife, her hit podcast Queery, and her old BuzzFeed web series Ask a Lesbian. She’s the foremost stand-up on LGBTQ topics, so get woke with Cameron by snagging tickets here. GET TICKETS (7pm show) / GET TICKETS (9pm show)

Gabriel Iglesias

April 21 @ New Jersey Performing Arts Center

“Fluffy” is back in Jersey on his perpetually endless tour. He has become one of the busiest men in funny-business over the last year, as his trademark Hawaiian shirts have now graced several specials, nearly every state in the U.S., and multiple other countries. Iglesias is known for his television shows I’m Not Fat… I’m Fluffy and Hot & Fluffy. Catch him and all his glorious fluff at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center this April. GET TICKETS (7pm show) / GET TICKETS (9pm show)

Steve Martin & Martin Short

May 4 & 5 @ Beacon Theatre

He’s a wild and crazy guy, and he comes with backup! Steve Martin is a king in the comedy world, known for his long stint on SNL during the golden age of the program and his starring roles in several of the 20th century’s most well known comedies like The Jerk, Father of the Bride, and Parenthood. Martin Short you’d recognize from about a thousand different bit parts- one of those actors that make you go: “Oh, that guy!” – and his work alongside Steve Martin in classics like The Three Amigos. Both of these virtuosos barely ever venture back into stand-up, so see them one of two nights this May at the beautiful Beacon Theatre or risk missing them for good! GET TICKETS (May 4) / GET TICKETS (May 5)

Stephen Colbert

May 9th @ 92nd Street Y

Since transitioning from the legendary Colbert Report to The Late Show on CBS, Stephen Colbert has been a very busy man. He’s gotten a massage from Tom Brady, talked race and politics with Killer Mike, and even hosted then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in what he reportedly called a “boring” interview. To see Colbert finding time for his stand-up roots is uncommon at best, so jump at the chance to see him live on stage this May. GET TICKETS

Hannibal Buress

May 18 @ BAM

Hannibal Buress is the man behind some of the most popular TV shows of the last five years. He was a writer on SNL for the 2009 and 2010 seasons, co-star of The Eric Andre Show since 2012, and a major role on the hilarious Comedy Central hit Broad City. In 2014, he was credited with letting the Bill Cosby cat out of the bag during a show in Philly, ensuing the media firestorm that brought down the once-revered comedian. That’s to say, you really can’t know what to expect at a Hannibal show except big-time laughs. Buy tickets here and buckle up. GET TICKETS

Kevin Hart

September 27 @ Madison Square Garden

The world’s most popular comedian? He might just be. This show isn’t until September, but it’s worth noting because tickets are starting at only $74 right now! Kevin Hart is a giant of comedy in… almost every sense. This year alone, he hosted the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, starred in the new Jumanji movie, and launched a web series where he interviews celebrities in an ice bath (Cold as Balls). His stature may be small but the laughs are anything but. Get tickets now before the prices fly up! GET TICKETS
