Lots of funny things happen when the United Nations of Comedy brings its talent-filled lineup to a local stage—and most are courtesy of Funnyman Skiba. The Washington, D.C. comic has become a repeat player in the UN of C’s effort to promote diversity through the common ground of laughter. He returns along with the “Taiwanese Texan” Shen Wang, who’s known as the thinking man’s comedian. Wang is a master at observing peculiarity in common tasks like operating a paper towel dispenser or renting an apartment, while avoiding the squirm-in-your-seat shock talk that so many of his contemporaries rely on.

Friday 1/31. $10-15,7:30pm. PVCC Dickenson Theater Main Stage, 501 College Dr. 961-5736.
