New podcasts worth


á 2 DOPE QUEENS Phoebe Robinson and former Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams riff on everything from racism to dad bods during this freewheeling conversation and stand-up showcase that breezes by thanks to hosts whose—in their words— chem chem is cray cray. à wnyc.org/shows/dopequeens


HARD NATION Bipartisan brothers Mike and Pete Hard—otherwise known as UCB regulars Mike Still and Paul Welsh—butt heads in this parody of political blowhard radio hosts. Uncanny, animated impressions from the likes of James Adomian (as Bernie Sanders) and Thomas Middleditch (as Justin Trudeau) keep the satire sharp. à earwolf.com/show/hard-nation


BEAUTIFUL STORIES FROM ANONYMOUS PEOPLE The anonymous guests on Chris Gethard’s call-in podcast aren’t always laugh-out-loud funny— unless you’re tickled by dead- end jobs, dementia and deflated marriages—but the comedian manages to draw out the humor in sometimes-bittersweet stories. à earwolf.com/show/beautiful-anonymous


Trevor Noah Before he became host of The


Daily Show, Noah was already leaving audiences in stitches with bits about politics, race and class. à Dolby Theatre, 6801 Hollywood Blvd (323- 308-6300, dolbytheatre.com). Oct 15 at 8pm; $34.50–$80.


Amy Schumer Don’t let Schumer’s status as a


pop-culture icon overshadow the fact that she’s a stellar stand-up with wicked smarts and quips. à The Forum, 3900 W Manchester Blvd, Inglewood (310-330-7300, fabulousforum .com). Oct 23 at 7:30pm; $44.50–$144.50.


Now Hear This More than 40 live podcasts are


recorded across six stages at this inaugural podcast festival, including Comedy Bang! Bang!, WTF with Marc Maron and more. à Anaheim Marriott, 700 Convention Way, Anaheim (714-750-8000, nowhearthisfest .com). Oct 28–30; $150.


NOVEMBER


John Cleese + Eric Idle The Monty Python founders


arrive stateside with a mix of storytelling, musical numbers and British sketch nostalgia. à Pasadena Civic Auditorium, 300 E Green St, Pasadena (800-307-7977, cleeseandidle .com). Nov 11 at 8pm; $59.50–$99.50.


Maria Bamford Even before her stellar Netflix


Time Out Los Angeles October–December 2016 62


series Lady Dynamite, Bamford’s understated presence and wickedly good voice work made her a red-hot stand-up. à The Novo, 800 W Olympic Blvd (213-765- 7000, thenovodtla.com). Nov 17 at 8pm; $29.50–$39.50.


Bridget Everett Everett is a chardonnay-swigging


nuclear missile of cabaret-style sass with a surprising sweetness. à El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Blvd (323-936-6400, theelrey.com). Nov 18 at 9pm; $29.50.


Festival Supreme Tenacious D is back to rock


your socks off with Flight of the Conchords, Weird Al, Patton Oswalt and more at this musical comedy fest. à Shrine Expo Hall & Grounds, 665 W Jefferson Blvd (213-748-5116, festivalsupreme.com). Oct 29 at 3pm; $99.50–$250.


A John Waters Christmas For most, Christmas is all


candy and holiday cheer. For filmmaker Waters, it’s sleighs of smut, perverted gifts and true- crime holiday horror stories, all present in this one-night-only, monologue-style comedy show. à The Comedy Store, 8433 Sunset Blvd (323- 650-6268, hollywood.thecomedystore.com). Dec 5 at 9pm; $50–$110.


Lewis Black


Whether the man is barking, twitching or yowling in pain about dim-witted leadership, one thing seems clear: Black was born to rant—about current events and politics in particular. à Orpheum Theatre, 842 S Broadway (877-677-4386, laorpheum.com). Dec 10 at 8pm; $39–$75.


Doug Loves Movies:


“12 Guests of Xmas” Though Doug Benson stays tight-lipped about the lineup for the holiday edition of his film- focused podcast, past guests include Scott Aukerman, Chris Hardwick and Jon Hamm. à Largo, 366 N La Cienega Blvd (310-855- 0350, largo-la.com). Dec 13 at 8:30pm; $30.
