Our guide to stand-up, improv and variety shows.

‘ALWAYS HAPPY VIDEO COMEDY BOP’ at Brooklyn Bazaar (Dec. 10, 8 p.m.). The comedy duo Never Sad, also known as Jed Feiman and Nehemiah Markos, whose work you may recognize from The New Yorker, have curated a night of never-before-seen comedy videos and shorts created by New York comedians and filmmakers. In addition to the prerecorded bits, the comedian Carmen Christopher is also scheduled for a stand-up set.bkbazaar.com

‘ASIAN AF’ at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater East Village (Dec. 12, 10:30 p.m.). This variety show, originally created by the actor Will Choi at U.C.B.’s Los Angeles outpost, eventually made its way to the East Coast with great fanfare — and fans. Tickets to the show, which features Asian-American improv, sketch, stand-up and musical performers, regularly sell out. Aparna Nancherla is slated for this installment, along with Fumi Abe, Jordan Mendoza and a handful of U.C.B. regulars. 212-366-9176, east.ucbtheatre.com

JANEANE GAROFALO, FEATURING JORDAN CARLOS at EastVille Comedy Club (Dec. 8-9, 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.). Ms. Garofalo became something of a ’90s icon after the 1994 film “Reality Bites,” wherein she played the best friend to Winona Ryder’s character, but her comedy is as relevant as ever. The veteran comic’s unabashed, devil-may-care style may seem off-the-cuff or improvised, but she’s simply making it look easy. 212-260-2445, eastvillecomedy.com

TIFFANY HADDISH at Carolines on Broadway (Dec. 8-9, 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., Dec. 10, 7:30 p.m.). Tracy Haddish has had a milestone year fit for a rising comedy star: After appearing in the comedy “Girls Trip” this summer, her debut solo comedy special, “She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood,” aired on Showtime in August. Ms. Haddish was also cast to perform alongside Tracy Morgan in his new TBS show, “The Last O.G.,” set to release next year, and in November she became the first black female stand-up comedian to host “Saturday Night Live.”212-757-4100, carolines.com

‘MORTIFIED’ at Littlefield (Dec. 14, 8 p.m.). Billed as “a comic excavation of teen angst artifacts,” this regular series has people dredge up their old journals, love letters, notes passed in class, original song lyrics from grade school, tales of woe and more, to share their shame with a room full of strangers. While some make the decision to leave embarrassing relics of adolescence in the dark recesses of their minds or storage lockers, others perform at “Mortified.”littlefieldnyc.com
