    DUNCAN TRUSSELL AT THE GAS Trussell is the kind of under-the-radar performer the Gas attracts. He’s had a bit part on “Curb Your Enthusiasm" and his own sketches on “Funny or Die,” he runs his own show in Los Angeles, and he has a popular podcast on iTunes. March 29,
    7 p.m. $20. Great Scott, 1222 Commonwealth Ave., Allston. 617-566-9014, www.greatscottboston.com

    PLAYBOOK Will Luera, a staple of the Boston improv scene, is the mind behind this show, an improvised one-act play. Instead of an audience suggestion, the performers use the first page of an unfinished script by a working playwright. This week, it’s “Ori and Addison” dramatist James Ferguson. “Playbook” runs Fridays through April 12. March 29, 10 p.m. $18. ImprovBoston,
    40 Prospect St., Cambridge. 617-576-1253, www.improvboston.com

    MISGIVINGS Dave Kane used to be a stand-up turned talk-show host. Now he performs as the character Father Patrick Aloysius Misgivings, an Irish Catholic priest. He’ll give two different shows — “Misgivings” and “Back in Plaid” — at the Regent. March 30, 3 and 7:30 p.m. $20-$25. Regent Theatre, 7 Medford St., Arlington. 781-646-4849, www.regenttheatre.com

    MARC MARON He got snowed out in February, so this week the comedian — whose IFC show, “Maron,” premieres May 3 — brings his stand-up and popular podcast, “WTF,” back to the city where he spent the formative years of his career. March 30, 7:30 p.m. (stand-up) and 10 p.m. (live podcast). $20-$25. Wilbur Theatre. 866-448-7849, www.thewilburtheatre.com
