April 7-8: Shawn Pelofsky

“What was really annoying about my high school reunion, is that the girl who was in charge of the slideshow sent a little message on the Facebook. And the message was a little annoying. It read like this: ‘Even if you’re not coming to the high school reunion, please send pictures of you and your kids.’ Presumptuous, isn’t it? So I sent a picture of myself f**king. I was like, ‘Working on it!’ ”

April 8: Sandler/Spade/Swardson/Schneider

April 13-15: Michael Ian Black

April 14-15: Steve Wilson

“My doctor told me the reason that I’m not sleeping is that I’ve got this thing called sleep apnea. For those of you that don’t know what sleep apnea is, it’s when you wake up the middle of the night dead. You snore so hard that in the middle of the night, your lungs and throat get together and say, ‘Let’s kill this motherf**ker.’”

April 21: Gary Owen

“If you’re a white guy and you’re sleeping with a black girl, there’s only one way you know if you’re putting it down like you should. Don’t listen to ‘Oh, you’re the biggest. You’re the best.’ Don’t listen to that—she says that to everybody. Don’t listen to that. The only way you know is, in the middle of sex, she grabs the back of your head, looks you dead in the face, and calls you the n-word. When you can make her ass forget you’re white, that’s when you know you’re putting it down.”

— Gary Owen on I Agree with Myself

April 21-23: Lil Duval

“I’m cheap as hell. Going to the mall with me is just like going to a museum. All we doing is looking and admiring. And I’m the tour guide.”

— Lil Duval on Cedric the Entertainer’s Starting Lineup

April 27-29: T.J. Miller

“I’m dyslexic, and I got really depressed about it recently, so I ended up slitting my ankles. I left a suicide note. It said, ‘See ya later, crocodiles.’”

— T.J. Miller on No Real Reason

April 28-29: Orny Adams

“Let me tell you where it all started for me. I was up in wine country, where you go from vineyard to vineyard with your cup. It’s basically trick-or-treating for adults. I was so drunk by the end of the day I was knocking on people’s houses. They’re like, ‘We’re not even a vineyard.’ I said, ‘I don’t care. You’ve got a big backyard, you must be growing something. Let’s go! Fill it up! And don’t be cheap on the pour.”
