This Monday, Lakeshore Theater presents what can only be described as cranky Jew-apalooza, featuring three of the funniest stand-up comics of all time. Andy Kindler, known to white suburbanites everywhere for his role on “Everybody Loves Raymond,” has been a constant presence on the stand-up scene for years. Kindler is stand-up’s whiny, over-protective guardian angel, hilariously attacking the chronic hack-iness that has forever plagued the form. Co-hort Eugene Mirman may share some similarities with alternative legends like Andy Kaufman and Steve Martin, but let it be known, there has never been a comedian quite like him. Although his act is difficult to describe, Mirman is an absurdist, and his blend of impressions, jokes and madness make him one of the most important comics working today, and his work on groundbreaking hit “Flight of the Conchords” may finally mean he’s getting the recognition he deserves. Headliner Marc Maron is a comedy legend and his aggressive style and unwillingness to conform result in a groan/laugh experience like no other comic in history. His personality and hipster persona have been a particular influence on the current scene, making him a luminary. This is truly a special opportunity to see three comic geniuses at work, and it should not be missed. (Max Minor)
