Michelle Wolf, David Fisher (multiple showtimes)

  • Comedy Club on State 202 State Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Stand-up and Daily Show contributor Michelle Wolf has a bubbly, beguiling stage presence that keeps you disarmed no matter how many barbs she throws out, and that's just where a comedian wants an audience. Whether she's arguing that men should have to put make-up on their balls ("or at the very least, googly eyes"), or deconstructing Kellyanne Conway, Wolf invests her material with a mischievous but genuine likeability. She knows how to keep it straightforward but isn't afraid to exercise some cleverness as a writer—her 2014 TV debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers closed on an inventive note with a riff about what kinds of reminders she'd like to tattoo on her body. Wolf plays here as she prepares to tape an HBO special in August. The brilliantly odd Madison-based stand-up David Fisher hosts this weekend's shows. —Scott Gordon
