Stephen Merchant at Town Hall
This noodly British comic (who we once saw at a party, and thought was a member of The National) is actually Ricky Gervais's right-hand man and co-creator of The Office, Extras and the forthcoming Life's Too Short. He takes on the U.S. for the first time, alone, with two shows at Town Hall. His stand-up show, "Hello Ladies," details his (most likely hilarious) struggles with dealing with the womenfolk.
Town Hall, 123. W. 43rd St. 8 p.m. $29-$49.
