DAN BOULGER One of Boston’s best comedians, Boulger has a perpetually amused, wry smile and a killer delivery. He is just as likely to aim his caustic wit inward — lambasting his spelling skills, for example — as outward: at sports fans, or at religious or political dogma. Shaun Bedgood features. Jan. 11,
9 p.m.; Jan. 12, 8 and 10:15 p.m. $20. Dick’s Beantown Comedy Vault.
800-401-2221, www.dickdoherty.com

JEFF DUNHAM The ventriloquist, currently on his “Disorderly Conduct” tour, has experimented with his stable of characters over the years, but has kept favorites like old man Walter, José Jalapeño, and Peanut the woozle, who now has his own Jeff Dunham puppet, which he calls “Little Ugly Jeff.” Jan. 12, 8 p.m. $49.50. Agganis Arena, 925 Commonwealth Ave., Boston. 800-745-3000, www.agganisarena.com
