Patton Oswalt takes the stage in San Francisco, where he talks about San Franciscans, the difficulties of being PC, fatherhood, his worst stand up experience, and the worlds most horrific Birthday Clown.
Jim Gaffigan does it again with his new stand-up Mr. Universe. Gaffigan jumps from topic to topic joking around with a varied number of topics. Some of the topics included are McDonalds, family, Disney World, and much more.

Aziz Ansari focuses his unique viewpoint on pending adulthood, babies, marriage and love in the modern era.
I love his point of view on having children, especially given how many comics are writing material based around their spouse and children. You may or may not agree with him, but it is a fresh perspective that clearly has a market.
And then, of course, you have to have the "blue humor" focused around child molestation and sending photos of private parts to others. Somehow, Ansari manages to be dirty without coming across as dirty. In fact, he seems quite sterile in comparison to many comics out there.
The Seal bit is repeated from an earlier tour, but it is still funny.
