Aziz Ansari: The Dangerously Delicious Tour
7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at the Vic Theatre; $35
You probably recognize him from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” or as host of the recent MTV Movie Awards, but check out Ansari at his funniest with comedy troupe Human Giant (most notably the Shutterbugs series). Tonight is his second show at the Vic, part of the TBS Just For Laughs Chicago tour in town all week.
Rhymefest, Schadenfreude, The Jordan Years
9 p.m. at Martyrs; $10
After winning a 2005 Grammy for the Kanye West-performed song "Jesus Walks," Rhymefest (aka Che Smith) appeared to be the next artist from Chicago to break into the mainstream. While a superstar career hasn’t yet panned out, he’s still churning out albums like his newest, El Che. It's been a long time coming for the local legend, and this event will be your chance to show your appreciation for all the work he's put in. In addition to Rhymefest and The Jordan Years (a contemporary funk band featuring Wes Restless of The Gent$), the night will also feature guest appearances by Schadenfreude, radio DJs Eddie & Jobo and furniture gurus, the Walter E. Smithe Brothers (yes, you read that correctly).
Martinis, Manicures and Massages
7-10 p.m. at The Uptown Lounge
Grab the girls and pamper yourself with Sky Vodka specials packaged with manis and rub-downs at this Uptown hangout. There will also be $3 beer bottles and $5 bombs all night.
