January is an overrated month. Resting on its New Year's laurels until Martin Luther King Jr. day, January battens against the treacherous snow and punishing cold, assuaging its regret over resolutions broken with indica, hot toddies and Netflix marathons. Comedy, however, has the dubious fortune of being impossible to over or underrate. Either you're laughing or you're not. Whatever it is that happens to tickle your fancy is at once both entirely subjective and impossible to equivocate with rhetoric. With that in mind, here's a collection of comedy shows for you to laugh or not laugh at. With perennially listed local favorites and returning visits from high profile headliners, there are plenty of reasons to bundle up and check out a comedy show this wintry month.
