Listed below is a roundup of CL's top picks for comedy shows in Charlotte this week. Hopefully, they keep you entertained and, more importantly, laughing out loud.

Stand up comedian and radio personality (The Opie & Anthony Show
), Jim Norton
likes to push buttons and not just any buttons, he wants yours
. In his 2012 special, "Please Be Offended" he expresses his love/hate relationship with himself, his country and whatever else he feels like addressing - including whiny liberals and conservatives who he believes are "equally fraudulent when it comes to supporting unpopular speech." Norton doesn't care whether or not you agree with him and he's resentful about changing anyone's views. He just wants to get all his frustrations out in the open, and what better place to do that than on a stage in front of a bunch of strangers? $20-$22.50. Thu., March 7, 8 p.m., Fri., March 8, 8 p.m. & 10:15 p.m. and Sat., March 9, 7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. The Comedy Zone Charlotte, 900 N.C. Music Factory Blvd., Suite B3. 980-321-4702. www.cltcomedyzone.com
