Fri 3/18
The Comedy Get Down


Considered by many fans as some of the best stand-up comedians working today, Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley, George Lopez and Charlie Murphy will share the stage Friday for this world tour performance that’s sure to get rowdier (and be way less racist) than a Donald Trump rally. Three of the five (Cedric, Griffin and Hughley) were named to Comedy Central’s Top 100 Comedians of All Time list and a majority of them have something to plug for 2016. Hughley will be tending to patients in the new medical drama Heartbeat, which debuts next week on NBC; Lopez is playing a fictional version of himself again in a new TV Land comedy series, aptly named Lopez, at the end of the month; Cedric is in yet another Barbershop movie in April; Murphy has a role in Mike Epps’ new flick Meet the Blacks, which also hits theaters next month; and Bill Cosby defender and conspiracy theorist Griffin will be busy giving more batshit crazy interviews and probably pitching a Malcolm & Eddie reunion to Netflix (hey, if those damn Full House kids can do it, why can’t he?). $49.75-$65.75, 8pm Fri, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy., (210) 444-5000, – Kiko Martínez
