Mixing a down-to-earth nature with a boisterous charm, Torres is one of the more original and captivating performers to hit Atlanta this year.
 

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. After nearly blowing the roof off the Earl at last September’s Red Clay Comedy Festival opening for Kyle Kinane, the fest favorite is coming back to EAV to headline. Mixing a down-to-earth nature with a boisterous charm, Torres is one of the more original and captivating performers to hit Atlanta this year. Don’t miss out.

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