Let’s cut to the chase: If you have dentures, will you be admitted to Tom Segura’s No Teeth No Entry Tour? Of course, the Aztec’s guidelines make no such stipulations for attendees who are all gums, and Segura’s stand-up act, chronicled on albums such as 2012’s White Girls with Cornrows can be merciless toward its intended targets, but signs indicate he is just kidding — probably.

His podcast — recorded with his wife, fellow comic Christina Pazsitzky — is called Your Mom’s House but they don’t mean anything by that, maybe. In the intro to his 2016 Netflix special Mostly Stories, he ridicules his home turf of Los Angeles before heading off to Seattle to perform, but that’s just an affectionate jab, right? Consider said special contains compassionate quips such as: “I don’t even want to lose weight to live long or be healthy. I don’t. I just want to make fun of fat people again, and know for sure that they’re fatter than me.” Say, wait a minute … OK, maybe he’s kind of a dick, but he’s a funny one.

$25-$35, 7pm Friday, November 3, The Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
