Eugene Mirman is a master of perfectly pitched absurdism and probably the funniest dour Russian imp currently living (RIP, Vlady the Laughmaker). And this is very exciting! Mirman—with gift from above Ron Funches—will be onstage at the Crocodile, a venue small and intimate enough that you can smell the performers making you laugh. Eugene Mirman smells like a summer's day. (Crocodile, 2200 Second Ave, www.thecrocodile .com, 8 pm, $15, 21+)
