Millions of Americans first got to know Ralph Harris when he battled it out with Amy Schumer as a finalist on "Last Comic Standing". But comedy aficionados have long loved the actor-comedian -- whose acting career actually took off "before" Schumer's with a starring role in '90s TGIF sitcom "On Our Own" and guest spots on "Seinfeld" and "Living Single". Harris has taken his comedy to the big screen with appearances in "Dreamgirls" and "Evan Almighty", but he's never lost sight of his stand-up roots, appearing in specials on Comedy Central, HBO and late night TV. His act pulls from his real life and often finds Harris slipping in and out of hilarious characters (including his 100-year-old grandfather "Pops"). Catch his hysterical act live at Baltimore Comedy Factory. [less-]

Fans of sad-sack comedy found a new hero to root for after seeing Robert Kelly's lovably lovelorn turn as Louie CK's brother on FX's "Louie". Onstage, the shiny-domed Kelly is no less self-deprecating, but amps up the energy with fast-talking riffs on life, relationships, food and everything in between. Cocky yet humble, his is a very specific strain of high-octane vulnerability that will leave you wanting to hug him as you try to recover from laughing uncontrollably. Try to restrain yourself as Kelly stops by Magooby's Joke House in Lutherville, where he is as likely to wax on the perils of traditional masculinity as he is to opine for green apples that taste like mac 'n' cheese.
