Currently, the New York native has performances scheduled through April 25.

    Ron White | A Little Unprofessional Tour
    Ron White first became a household name in comedy after the Blue Collar Comedy Tour (with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy) became a nationwide sensation in the early 2000s. Rarely seen on stage without his trademark cigar and glass of scotch, this Southern comedian earned a 2014 GRAMMY nomination for his album “A Little Unprofessional.” His ongoing tour in support of the album will resume on Jan. 2 in Sarasota, Fla., and will continue through the end of June.

    Brian Regan
    Like many comedians before him, Brian Regan first rose to national attention after appearing on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in the mid-90s. Today, the Florida native, who is well-known for his brand of clean comedy, has released numerous stand-up specials, including his latest, 2010’s “All By Myself.” The veteran is expected to perform more than 30 times in the U.S. in 2014, starting on Jan. 9 in Toledo, Ohio.

    Bill Cosby | Far From Finished Tour
    Bill Cosby made a big return to comedy in 2013 after his first comedy special in 30 years, “Far From Finished,” aired on Comedy Central in November. His characteristic approach to family, friendship, and aging still shines through in his latest work, and you can see the comedy pioneer as he continues his tour with dozens of new dates in the new year.

    Jim Gaffigan | White Bread Tour
    Self-deprecating humor has always been at the heart of Jim Gaffigan’s stand-up comedy.

More hilarious stories of his family and self-proclaimed cluelessness in parenthood are built into his ongoing White Bread Tour, whose North American dates are currently scheduled through June 14 in Cherokee, N.C.

    Other Stars Hitting the Comedy Circuit in 2014
    Amy Schumer will launch her own solo tour on Jan. 4, building off the success of her acclaimed Comedy Central sketch show "Inside Amy Schumer."

Massachusetts natives Bill Burr and John Pinette are also scheduled for numerous performances next year. Burr will bring his satirical wit to a handful of venues in the first two months of the year, while Pinette continues his Still Hungry Tour with more than a dozen appearances.
