Zainab Johnson

Thu., April 25

Having grown up in Harlem as one of 13 siblings in a Muslim family, comedian Zainab Johnson has plenty of material at her disposal. Originally, she worked as a teacher, but after appearances on HBO's All Def Comedy and BET's Comic View, her career in comedy began to take off. She performed in the Montreal "Just For Laughs Festival" as one of the 2014 New Faces of Comedy, as well as one of the breakout new comedians on NBC's Last Comic Standing Season 8. She performs tonight at 7:30 at the Improv, where she has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets cost $17 to $20. (Niesel)

Bob Marley

Thu., April 25

Comic Bob Marley doesn't play reggae, but he does sing out of his butt. Like the time his wife put him on the Atkins Diet and, he reports, the "assflac" duck flew out his butt as he hovered over the toilet with bacon grease dripping from his eyelashes. Yeah, this guy is not above fart jokes. Other topics of humor include the agonies of waiting for a pizza, the comparison of strippers to pillows, and the process of pretending to understand legal documents. He's pretty hilarious. The show starts at 7 tonight at Hilarities and performances run through Saturday. Tickets start at $25. (Liz Trenholme)
