Absurdly awesome comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are teaming up with their good pal Dr. Steve Brule (John C. Reilly) for a series of live performances that kick off with a show in Montreal on Sept. 4. “It's time to get real, it's time to get live,” Heidecker says of this exciting tour in a special announcement video.

Fans of interactive comedy won't want to miss Paula Poundstone when she kicks off a massive U.S. tour at the start of this month. Over the years, Poundstone has perfected her crowd work style of comedy, ensuring that no two shows are alike. Her humor is never mean spirited, but she doesn't shy away from controversial issues like politics and religion. Poundstone will be performing in Norfolk and Kansas City before heading to Las Vegas at the end of the month.
This September finds Demetri Martin joining the likes of Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman and Aziz Ansari at several stops on the Oddball Comedy Festival tour. Martin's unique brand of dry, deconstructed observational humor has helped him to become one of the most unique and hilarious comedians to emerge in recent years. Martin will be performing at the Oddball Comedy Festival at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, WA and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, amongst other dates.
Somehow, gruff-voiced comedian Kyle Kinane resisted the creativity squashing love of two supportive parents from the Chicago suburbs to come forth as one of the fastest rising stars in the comedy scene. Don't miss the chance to see him live when he performs in Denver, Chicago and Tampa throughout this month.
