Wilbur Theatre. 866-448-7849, www.thewilburtheatre.com NICK A. ZAINO III

ITCHING MAN Organizer Evan O’Television calls this show “A Festicle of Funny,” just one indication of the weirdness to come. O’Television’s own act usually consists of arguing with a video version of himself, a kind of introspective ventriloquism. This year’s Itchers also include Ding Ho veteran DJ Hazard, nonmotivational speaker Brian Longwell, and a pair of puppet acts: Kim Mikenis (“Lost and Found”) and Fat Nancy and Crisco. June 9,
7 p.m. $13. Cambridge YMCA Theatre, 820 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge.www.evanotv
