There are some rare extra comedy treats happening this weekend. In addition to many of the regular shows you can find on our calendar, here are a handful of must-see performances.

Friday:

Jim Jeffries @ The Keswick Theater. 8:00pm
If you haven't seen his comedy, give yourself a quick sample on YouTube. He's like an Austrailian Doug Stanhope. He may some day go down as one of the greats.

Hang On With Aaron Nevins @ The Adrienne Playground. 8:00pm.
Outstanding panel comedy featuring very funny Philly comedians. Tonight's guests are the creators of High Maintenance--named Best Web Series by USA Today and The Guardian--and Ethan T. Berlin the creator of IFC's Bunk (who's also been a writer on Superjail and Da Ali G Show).

Saturday:

Davenger's Final Show @ PHIT. 9:00pm.
The former WitOut Award Winner for best new act features many of Philadelphia's best young improv talent. They're likely to sell out, so get your tickets online.

Ted Alexandro @ Helium. 7:30pm & 10:00pm.
Very funny Letterman regular. Catch him here at a small club before he starts doing theaters.
