This month starts with some comedy from a Broken Lizard, a pair of twin brothers, a late night talk show host with a Scottish accent, and a Guiness World Record setter. 

Russell Howard - Wonderbox
He's taken over the comedy world in England and now he's started an American invasion with his first world tour. With a #1 TV show and sold out shows across the pond, he is a big deal. Really.
When: 8:00 p.m., Thursday, May 8
Where: Punch Line Comedy Club, 444 Battery St.

Darryl Lenox
His visual impairment probably just heightens his ability to make his audiences laugh — as if he needs it. His comedy album, "Blind Ambition" was dubbed one of the top 5 of the year by Stageline Magazine alongside Louis CK, Reggie Watts, Tig Notara, and Patrice O'Neal. Yes, he is THAT good.
When: Various times, May 9-10
Where: Punch Line Comedy Club, 444 Battery St.

The Sklar Brothers
Randy and Jason Sklar have been all over TV, the comedy circuit, and they have their own sports and pop culture podcast Sklarbro Country. They look alike. They sound alike. And sometimes they even walk alike.
When: Various times, May 9-10
Where: Cobb's Comedy Club, 915 Columbus Ave.

The Good, The Bad, and the Improvised
What happens when the talented cowpokes from BATS improv try to test their skills set to ten gallon hats, horses, betrayal, saloons, and gun-slinging heroes? A gritty and hilarious tale of the old west.
When: 8 p.m., Saturday, May 10
Where: Bats Improv Theatre, B350 Fort Mason Center

Hey Gurl! with Nico Santos
Nico Santos hosts a fabulous night of comedy with gay men and ladies including Joe Dosch, Ronn Vigh, Marcella Arguello, Colleen Watson, Caitlin Gill, and Natasha Muse.
When: 8 p.m., Tuesday, May 13
Where: Punch Line Comedy Club, 444 Battery St.

Mo Mandel
He's a regular on Chelsea Lately and has blessed TV shows like Modern Family, Happy Endings, and Conan with his presence. His Comedy Central half hour special was highly rated too.
When: Various times, May 14-17
Where: Punch Line Comedy Club, 444 Battery St.

Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan
If you're a fan of Super Troopers, Beerfest, Club Dread, or anything else that the Broken Lizard Comedy group has done, you probably already know about this show. If not, then now's a better time than any to become a fan.
When: Various times, May 16-18
Where: Cobb's Comedy Club, 915 Columbus Ave.

Adam Carolla
Sure, you may remember him from things like Loveline and The Man Show, but Adam Carolla has proven himself to be the master of all that is radio and podcasting. His podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, has set records — Guinness World Records. And it all started with his career as a comedian.
When: 7 p.m., Sunday, May 18
Where: Palace of Fine Arts, 3301 Lyon St.

Robert Hawkins
Mr. Robert Hawkins has been marking his comedy territory since 1993. First he won the California State University Comedy Competition and then was crowned as the Funniest Person in Austin. Soon enough, he was crowned one of the top 25 comics in the country and then he went on to write and star in Titus. The next obvious step in his career is to take over the world.
