We're running the table, baby. Here's our pick of the best in independently produced comedy this week. Wednesday, April 23 John Oliver's New York Stand-Up ShowGet More: Watch More Stand-Up. Hot Crowd Over the Eight, 8.30 p.m. Free. Since Jerry Seinfeld became a billionaire stadium-only act, New York comedy has sought The Next Chosen One: our city's undisputed king...

Medical student Nicolai (Leonid Bichevin) arrives in Paris from Moscow intending to improve his French and... More on Cinema Village »
