Unless you recognize a comedian’s name as That Girl From that Movie or the Dude from That One HBO Special, it can be hard to tell whether a stand-up is worth seeing. Lucky you: Scene did the legwork, and the skinny on this week’s big comedy shows, video included, is just a click away. – D.X. Ferris Comedian: Greg Fitzsimmons Specialty: A regular on the late-night TV circuit (and at Pickwick), Fitzsimmons is fed up with airport security and traffic, and has funny stories about his kids.

Showtimes: Thu: 8 p.m. Fri-Sat: 7:30 and 10:15 p.m. Comedian: Mike Green (With Chad Miller) Specialty: Green’s a strong storyteller with an improv background, and sticks with regular-guy jokes about himself and his apparent bitch of a mother-in-law.
