New Year, New Laughs

Kick the year off right with these six comedy shows.


Jerry Seinfeld has a few things to say.   

The Talent Show
Joe's Pub; 1/6 at 9:30 p.m.; 425 Lafayette St., nr. Astor Pl.; 212-539-8777
Have a gift lying around from the holidays that just doesn’t jive with your lifestyle? Bring it to this month’s installment of the Talent Show, a variety show hosted by Elna Baker and Kevin Townley. Swap it for something better, then sit back and be entertained by guests Dave Hill, Mike Albo, Hari Kondabolu, Starlee Kine, and more.

Tinder Live With Lane Moore
The Bell House; 1/7 at 8 p.m.; 149 7th St., nr. Second Ave., Gowanus
With enviable bravery, host Lane Moore utilizes Tinder to find herself a date, with the help of an audience. Special guests Jon Glaser, Scott Adsit, and Stephanie March, of Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, will be on hand to help, hilariously assessing the worthiness of profiles.

Jermaine Fowler
Union Hall; 1/7 at 7:30 p.m.; 702 Union St., at Fifth Ave., Park Slope; 718-638-4400
The young stand-up comic and star of TruTV’s Friends of the People performs in support of his debut comedy special, Give Em Hell, Kid, which premiered in December on Showtime.

Jerry Seinfeld

Fresh off of his interview with President Obama, the comedian begins a year-long residency at the Beacon. If you miss him this time around, the next show is February 18.

Pam Ann
The Triad Theater; 1/12 and 1/14 at 8 p.m., 1/13 at 9:30 p.m. 158 W. 72nd St., nr. Amsterdam Ave., Williamsburg
The bawdy, sex-and-drugs-obsessed air-hostess alter ego of Australian comedienne Caroline Reid has been called “cruelly funny” by Madonna, which is a compliment if we’ve ever heard one. Be prepared to camp it up and probably learn some airplane facts along the way.
