There is nothing tranquil about comedian/actor Chris Tucker. A limber, wiry fellow with a high-pitched voice and a delivery as fast as a mosquito's wing beats, he seems energy incarnate. Tucker first started out on the LA comedy scene in the Nineties, on the Def Comedy Jam circuit before coming to prominence in films such as his debut, Friday and then the Rush Hour trilogy. Nowadays he is back on the stage following an expensive run-in with the IRS, and his humor draws upon this and his early life, switching seamlessly between different personas.

Iliza Shlesinger is on fire and taking no prisoners! In what has been a whirlwind rise to popularity in the last few years, she's the only female to have won the title of NBC's Last Comic Standing, her debut comedy special Warpaint was one of the most downloaded comedy specials on Itunes and Netflix picked up her follow up Freezing Hot, a hilarious stand-up special that showcases her high-energy observational routine and sparky digs at the gender divide.

The Beacon Theater, originally opened in 1929 as a movie theater, was designed by Chicago architect Walter W. Ahlschlager. The theater has a seating capacity of 2,894 and has three tiers. During the 1970s, the venue started to host concerts and other music events, and is now one of the leading music and entertainment venues in New York, managed by the Madison Square Garden Company. The 2011 and 2012 Tony Awards, which were broadcast on CBS-TV, were hosted at the Beacon Theater. In 1982, it joined the National Register of Historic Places, and in November 2006 the theatre was added to MSG Entertainment's family of world-class venues.
