Rory Scovel (multiple showtimes)

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

There are a handful of comics who come through Madison every year or so like clockwork, and in that list of names there are some worth catching each and every time. At the very top of that list is Rory Scovel, who draws on a bottomless pool of absurdist riffs that zig and zag across the lines of any sense of rational joke structure. If you don't believe me, check out his Netflix special from last year, Rory Scovel Tries Stand-Up For The First Time, which opens with an extended riff on anal sex that's somehow more silly than scandalous. Ping-ponging wildly from topic to topic with anarchic glee while somehow never losing control of the audience, Scovel is one of the most talented comics out there these days, and a dark comedy club is the best place to see him do his thing. Zach Martina features and the host is TBD as I write this. —Chris Lay
