After Richmond visits from well-known standups such as Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Schumer, as well as check-ins by alt-comedy heavyweights like Kyle Kinane and Myq Kaplan this past year, Hannibal Buress keeps the momentum going with a March 29 set at the Carpenter Theatre. A former writer for Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, Buress left the relative safety of the writers’ room to refocus on performing. His decision has paid off with a steadily increasing profile, whether fans know him as the surreal talk-show sidekick on The Eric Andre Show, as Lincoln the dentist on Broad City, or as the skilled standup whose Bill Cosby jokes somewhat inadvertently opened the door to a serious reconsideration of rape accusations against the comedy legend. 8:00 p.m. $27. 592-3400 or richmondcenterstage.com.
