Whitney Cummings

Sometimes the smaller things pack the most punch. Such is the case with Whitney Cummings, who boasts a biting wit — and excellent hair. The stand-up comic and creator of the popular television series Two Broke Girls returns to the Valley with an arsenal of take-no-prisoners, laugh-out-loud recollections of love and relationships.

Her honest take on everything from orgasms to the inner workings of the female mind has gained the attention of the comedy world; Cummings has played alongside popular performers Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari, and Sarah Silverman. If you caught her on the now-defunct Chelsea Lately, you know you’re in for a good time.

Cummings does comedy at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday, January 16, at Tempe Improv, 930 East University Drive. Additional shows are on Saturday, January 17, and Sunday, January 18. Tickets for the 18-and-over gig are $30 and a two-drink minimum is required. Visit for details and tickets, or call 480-921-9877.

Fri., Jan. 16, 7:30 & 10 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 17, 7 & 10 p.m.; Sun., Jan. 18, 7 p.m., 2015
