Seasonal Special Happenings

Mike Check

When: Wed., Aug. 7, 7 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 11, 8 p.m. 2013

When it comes to Mike Lawrence’s stand-up routine, the comedian’s most appealing quality is his utter lack of self-confidence. According to him, his look falls somewhere between a rapist and “Robin Williams trying to talk Matt Damon into believing in himself.” But standup isn’t a beauty pageant, and when it comes to clever punch lines, Lawrence delivers. He was featured as one of the “New Faces” at the 2010 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and on the FX program Totally Biased this year. While the man looks to have put on some pounds between these two credits — his beard has gone from modestly trimmed to lumberjack bushy — his routines have grown with him as he’s become a noteworthy up-and-comer in the New York City comedy scene. Lawrence is scheduled to take the Hilarities stage tonight at 7; tickets are $18. (Jacob DeSmit)
