W. Kamau Bell, Joel McHale, Eric Andre, and Eugene Mirman.   

The Eric Andre Show
Santos Party House; 7/19 at 8 p.m.; 96 Lafayette St., nr. Walker St.; 212-584-5492
The maniac Adult Swim talk-show host—whom you may also recognize from Don’t Trust the B In Apt 23—has taken his show on the road with stops at Santos Party House (7/19) and Public Assembly (7/21). Joining him will be comedian Kevin Barnett, musical guests Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire at Santos and Wiki at Public Assembly, fake celebrity guests, and shenanigans. So many shenanigans.

Pretty Good Friends With Eugene Mirman
Williamsburg Park; 7/19 at 6:30 p.m.; Kent Ave., at N. 12th St., Williamsburg
Imagine if Eugene Mirman’s “Pretty Good Friends,” were boring. Then we’d all be sitting around watching some boring people do boring things, which would not be entertaining at all. Luckily for us, his friends are highly entertaining, world-class comedians. And even luckier for us, they’re doing a free show in Williamsburg Park. On the lineup tonight: Kurt Braunohler, host of IFC’s Bunk; Kristen Schaal; Bobcat Goldthwait (!!!); and musical guest OK Go.

Laughter Against The Machine with W. Kamau Bell
Union Hall; 7/23 at 7:30 p.m.; 702 Union St.,at Fifth Ave., Park Slope; 718-638-4400
Proving that being socially aware and hilarious are not mutually exclusive, to celebrate the launch of his new FX show Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell (premiering August 9), Bell and his fellow Totally Biased writers Hari Kondabolu, Dwayne Kennedy, Janine Brito and Nato Green rage against the establishment … with laughter. And beefs all around. With guest Baratunde Thurston.

Uptown Showdown
Symphony Space; 7/24 at 8 p.m.; 2537 Broadway, at 95th St.; 212-864-5400
If you didn’t get your fill of Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler, they’ll be back in a series debating the most important topics of our times. Filling out the panel will be Christian Finnegan, Myq Kaplan (Last Comic Standing), and Bob Powers (Happy Cruelty Day) with a topic plaguing society for centuries: Babies vs. Old People. Hopefully it’ll be settled once and for all.

Joel McHale
Carolines on Broadway; 7/25 at 8:30 p.m.; 1626 Broadway, nr. 50th St.; 212-757-4100
Sarcasm in the form of a very tall, very handsome dude who looks great in a suit (call us, Joel McHale!). The Community and Soup star—with a new story arc on Sons of Anarchy—takes the stage in Times Square for one night only. If you can’t get enough, he’ll also be in Atlantic City on 7/27 taking that suit for a spin at the Borgata. Buy him some poker chips, why don't ya?
