Enter Mic’d Up, our ongoing weekly series that details the best live comedy shows to consider as you head out and about. Below find our rundown for this week, through Sunday (September 25).
There’s no elegant way to say it: Ron White still, after all these years on the stand-up grind, couldn’t give any less of a fuck. His sobriety may leave his once-customary onstage glass of scotch in the rearview, but that doesn’t take anything away from his brutally unapologetic insights and dissections of any topic of the day that pops into his head that still continue to power the exquisitely vulgar and wonderfully brash comedy locomotive that is Tater Salad himself.

It’s a variety show, and it’s bound to spectacular. Yes, that’s exactly what the name of the show is, but there’s also no way around describing it as such with 50 percent of comedy rockers Ninja Sex Party throwing down in Somerville with 100 percent laughing gas. Revisiting the area that hold his ImprovBoston roots, Ninja Brian has a stellar night of comedy, music and mischief at the ready that will hopefully have everyone throwing some respect on the fact that he’s been wearing a mask before it was cool and required per CDC guidelines.
