Guy Fieri owes his success to the Food Network and maybe just a little bit to comedian Shane Torres. For his second turn on “Conan,” the New York-based comic dedicated his entire set in defense of the crazy-haired chef. No matter what subject he tackles, Torres’ commentary is always astute, meticulously crafted, and lively.

$12. 8 p.m. Sun., Mar. 11. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. S.E. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
