You might have seen Bedford-born stand-up Dustin Ybarra as a character actor in Gotham
, We Bought a Zoo
or Ted 2
, but watching him on stage, it’s impossible to imagine him being anyone but himself. In all the right ways, Ybarra’s act seems indistinguishable from watching him telling a story to friends at a party — the setups and punchlines are so well crafted they’re nearly invisible. Rejected coupons, stealing toilet paper from Long John Silver’s, video game trash-talking and other day-to-day activities serve as launch pads for tangential rants that sound like they could come from your funniest friend — if he or she spent countless hours working them out on the road.
