Start your summer laughing with a former Chelsea Lately regular, and end it cracking up to Jerry Seinfeld and Gabriel Iglesias, the "fluffiest" comedian going. In between, catch a season full of stellar comedians on stages in Philadelphia and Atlantic City, including Philly guys like Kurt Metzger, and Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric fame.

Jo Koy (June 10, Punch Line Philly). The former Chelsea Lately regular and veteran stand-up comedian comes to Philly for a few nights of comedy, sans Chelsea Handler. Catch Koy's latest special, Jo Koy: Live from Seattle, on Netflix. (215-606-6555,

Kurt Metzger (June 22-24, Punch Line Philly). Hometowner Metzger's raunchy stylings are detectable in his work as a writer and actor on Inside Amy Schumer and Ugly Americans.

Doug Benson's "Doug Loves Movies" (June 24-25, Helium). Professional stoner Benson hosts two days of blazed movie-watching. Philadelphia has decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana, so this one ought to go well. (215-496-9001,

Jay Leno (July 2, Borgata). Since leaving The Tonight Show in 2014, Leno has been returning more and more to stand-up, his first love. Fans who miss him on the show can think of his set as a monologue performed live and locally. (609-317-1000,

Chris Kattan (July 6-8, Punch Line Philly). You may know him as Mango or Mr. Peepers, thanks to his run on Saturday Night Live, but there's more to Kattan than playing a lamé-loving male stripper. Then again, a little nostalgia never hurt anyone. (215-606-6555,

Sebastian Maniscalco (July 6-8, Borgata). His specials What's Wrong with People? and Aren't You Embarrassed? are already modern comedy classics, and Maniscalco isn't slowing down. This summer, he brings his new Why Would You Do That? set to Atlantic City. (609-317-1000,

Steve Rannazzisi (July 13-15, Helium). The League star Rannazzisi was branded a liar after it was revealed in 2015 that his famous 9/11 escape story was fake, but we're reasonably sure he'll actually be at Helium. (215-496-9001,

The Dollop (July 15, Trocadero). Comedians Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds make history hilarious on their podcast, The Dollop. Now, the pair bring their show to the Cradle of Liberty for a live performance. (215-922-6888,

Ten years in, these guys still haven't run out of comedic non sequiturs. (215-893-1999,

Jeff Dunham (July 22, Borgata). With half a dozen Comedy Central specials and one series, ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is one of the most prolific acts to come out of the network. He brings his puppet-centric antics to the Shore. (609-317-1000,

Bill Maher (Aug. 19, Borgata). It's bound to get political, given President Trump's influence on Atlantic City. Real Maher fans wouldn't have it any other way. (609-317-1000,

Jerry Seinfeld (Aug. 25-26, Borgata). Still the undisputed king of observational comedy, more than 40 years into his career. Really, though, what is the deal with airline food? (609-317-1000,
