Wyatt Cenac will get stuff off his chest in Times Square.   

Wyatt Cenac
Carolines on Broadway; 3/1-3/4.; 1626 Broadway., nr. 50th St.; 212-757-4100
A couple of things we know about the Daily Show correspondent: 1) his Comedy Central stand-up special aired last year, 2) He doesn't eat a lot of vegetables. Hear him talk about both (maybe) when he hits up Times Square this weekend.

POSE
Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre; 3/2 at 8 p.m.; 307 W. 26th St., nr. Eighth Ave.; 212-366-9176
Sue Galloway—who you may recognize as Sue LaRoche Vanderhoot from 30 Rock—brings the stellar advice from Pose, her women's magazine, to life onstage. Much easier than reading.

Never Sleep Alone
Joe's Pub; 3/2 at 11 p.m.; Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette St., nr. Astor Pl.; 212-539-8777
In our book, laughter is the best aphrodisiac. At "Never Sleep Alone," there's an opportunity to combine the two when sexual psychologist and music therapist Dr. Alex Schiller performs a mix of comedy and pop songs, dispenses dating advice, and guides willing lonely hearts through speed dating. Just want to watch? That’s okay, too, but it'll cost you extra.

Secret Policeman's Ball
Radio City Music Hall; 3/4 at 7 p.m.; 1260 Sixth Ave., nr. 50th St.; 212-247-4777
A fancy-pants event for a good cause, this year’s annual Amnesty International benefit features the joke stylings of Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Russell Brand, Hannibal Buress and much more, and the musical stylings of Coldplay and Mumford & Sons. If the comfort of your couch is too much of a draw, the event will be telecast live on EPIX.

Mike Epps
The Theater at Madison Square Garden; 3/3 at 8 p.m.; 4 Penn Plz., nr. 32nd St., 212-465-6741
The Next Friday (and Friday After Next) star gets on his feet for the “I’m Still Standing” tour.

Tales of the Cosmos
UCB East; 3/4 at 7 p.m.; 155 East 3rd St., nr. Ave. A.; 212-366-9231
Stories of our great big universe, from a much smaller theater in the East Village. Featuring Jon Friedman, Ted Travelstead, Julie Klausner, and seventeen-time Moth StorySLAM winner Adam Wade.

Pretty Good Friends
Union Hall; 3/4 at 7:30 p.m.; 702 Union St., at Fifth Ave., Park Slope; 718-638-4400
Eugene Mirman is all over the place these days, including taking his stand-up festival to Seattle later this month. You can still catch him this Sunday hanging with his pals Lang Fisher, Mark Normand, Josh Gondelman and Damien Lemon in Park Slope, though. Because (say it with us) New York is the best!
