Tinder Live!

Combining sex and painful awkwardness, dating apps are common fodder for stand-up material. Comics often wring laughs from bad profiles and worse dates, but Lane Moore actually opens her Tinder account onstage, projecting the app on a screen behind her to make fun of potential matches in real time. She lets spectators vote whether to swipe left or right (accepting or rejecting their profiles, if you’re fortunate enough to not need the app), and gives everyone a voyeuristic thrill by texting and calling would-be suitors while the audience listens in, ensuring every show is one-of-a-kind, localized, and has an element of actual danger. If you’re on Tinder and don’t want to become part of the evening’s entertainment, Moore cautions at the start of the show, you should probably turn off your phone. $24.50, 7:30pm, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org. — JM
