DELRAY BEACH – A regular on the Tonight Show, on Thursday Mike Vecchione is bringing his rapid-fire delivery to North Palm Beach to headline the Lettuce Laugh comedy series at the Farmer’s Table.

Vecchione has also appeared on Conan and Inside Amy Shumer.

Transplanted Minnesota comic Jamie Blanchard is featuring for Vecchione, with show producer Jen Hellman hosting.

Along with likely being a fantastically funny show, some of the money earned on this night will benefit Hellman’s charity Comics Crushing Cancer.

Those who want to see Vecchione but can’t make this performance will have a second chance two nights later at the Sunrise Theatre in Fort Pierce.

Applause Planner – Plan On It

Kubs Comedy Show – Thurs. May 6, Holy Mackerel Brewery
From the south and can’t make the drive north to Mike Vecchione’s show? This may be more convenient. The Holy Mackerel Brewery, located in Wilton Manors, offers a strong local lineup that includes Rosco Nash, Hansen Sinclair, Carmen Zita, Zach Bugarin, Lonnie Cox, Vital Dieujuste, Connie Fernandez, Freddy Finnerty. The show is free and begins at 8 p.m.

Christina P – Thurs. May 6, Palm Beach Improv
Fans of Christina P had two shows to choose from on this night, the first beginning at 7 p.m. and the second at 9:30 p.m. The night before Christina P and Tom Segura are recording their You Mom’s House podcast at the Improv. The podcast recording and Thursday’s early show are both sold out, so anyone without a ticket should plan on Thursday’s second performance.

Kevin Smith – Fri., May 7, Old School Square
If Vecchione weren’t in an intimate environment, this would have been the pick of the week. Kevin Smith of “Jay and Silent Bob” fame is playing outdoors in the center of Delray Beach. Tickets are a bit pricey, ranging from $75-$300. Those who would rather spend their weekly comedy dollars to see Smith over say Vecchione, well, it’s understandable.

Damon Wayans – Friday May 7 – Sunday May 9, Palm Beach Improv
It’s a good week to spend time at the Improv. Aside from being a mega-star, Wayans is also hilarious in person. Tickets are still available for every one of the five performances this week, so pick the time that works best. General admission seats are going for $40.
