Kick yourself for not showing up to the Annoyance’s one-night revival of Dave Maher Coma Show, in which the titular stand-up comic tells the story of his descent into and painstaking recovery from a 2014 diabetic coma. Maher is that rare monologist who combines a sharp eye for the microdetail (his meticulous description of the two-hour shower he took after being released from months in rehab is riveting) with a keen understanding of macrostructure, making for a performance both disarmingly personal and carefully controlled. After sitting through these 70 minutes, I’d watch Maher do just about anything. Luckily he’s in the middle of an eight-week run at the Annoyance, dubbed Dave Maher II, where he’s putting up a new show every week. —Justin Hayford
