7/16–17
ADAM CAROLLA

The funnyman behind the “most downloaded podcast” (The Adam Carolla Show)—and radio personality, comedian, actor to boot—is here to prove how funny he can be without having anything prepared by saying “challenge accepted” to spinning on-the-spot audience ideas into honest-to-goodness hilarity. Now this is something you have to see for yourself.

7/27-8/1
SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD

You know that feeling of floating—and then disaster strikes: layoffs, loss, breakups. The butterfly effect of life isn’t in the surviving—but in the choosing.
