So, Four Comedians Walk Into a Bar . . .

Young American Comedy Tour. Dull name, granted, but this annual tour of comics tears up the Improv whenever they stop by for their one-night stands, and they’re back for another go. Host Mike Young (who had a sitcom in the works with ABC titled Forever Young) and his boy-wonder yukmeisters skewer everyone from frat boys to grown-up guys with their sharp-witted shticks. There’s Freddy Lockhart, who does a pretty hilarious impression of Shaquille O'Neal doing Will Smith. And then there’s Jordy Fox, a scraggily-bearded jokester who has a funny routine about how fat women love cake (go figure). l Sebastian Maniscalco. Sam Tripoli, a favorite guest of The Late Late Show, rounds out out the smart-ass six-pack.
