Neal Brennan: Unacceptable: Proving that he’s a comedian’s comedian, Brennan’s now show at the Cherry Lane -- in which the comedian meticulously examines his own defects while attempting to understand his baffling inability to fit into a group – has already been seen by such geniuses as David Letterman, Stephen Colbert and Chris Rock. Now, it’s your turn (through November 21).

Lindsey Buckingham: The legendary guitarist and singer – for over 40 years one-fifth of pop supergroup Fleetwood Mac and the voice of such megahit singles as “Holiday Road” – makes a rare solo appearance at NYC’s Town Hall on September 16. You can get there your own way.

Judy Gold: One of the funniest ladies on planet Earth, the Emmy Award-winning stand-up comic is sure to keep audiences laughing in the aisles, or at least in their seats, during her September 17 show at City Winery Hudson River Park’s intimate Loft space.

A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet: Broadway favorites Alex Wyse and Ben Fankhauser are both the writers and stars of this new Off-Broadway musical at the DR2 (beginning on September 17) about a pair of jingle writers who are chosen to help a pop diva (played by the always fabulous Bryonha Marie Parham) create a new anthem for her – and her new perfume.

Dave Koz and Friends: Renowned jazz icon Dave Koz (best known to 1990s daytime drama fans for composing the then-theme to “General Hospital”) makes a rare NYC appearance at the new Palladium Times Square on September 18. He will be joined by Grammy Award winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum, two-time Grammy nominated saxophonist and vocalist Mindi Abair and emerging jazz artist Vincent Ingala.

Alison Arngrim: Confessions of a Prairie Bitch: The actually delightful actress – who so convincingly played “Little House on the Prairie” mean girl Nellie Oleson -- brings her uproarious, dirt-dishing solo show to downtown’s Caveat on September 19.
