Jay Pharoah @ The Improv

July 5-8

The Improv
Fourth Street Live
$20; various times

Take those sun-stroked hands of yours and wipe those 103° tears out of your eyes, because there is nothing funny about what is going on outside. But inside at The Improv, it’s funnier than the summertime hell that has invaded our fair city when Jay Pharoah rocks the stage this weekend. The Virginia native became a New York transplant after being cast by network/comedy legend Lorne Michaels for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” a role he got on account of his countless spot-on celebrity impersonations. He has also performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and BET’s “One Mic Stand,” as well as starring in the film “Lola Versus.” So get your red, peeling asses downtown this weekend and laugh those insipid tan lines off with Pharoah. —Brent Owen
