It may be fall, but at the Who Charted? podcast taping you can bet host Howard Kremer will be prodding you to "have a summah." The comedian has released four musical-comedy albums based around that single phrase—Have a Summah, Have Anothah Summah, Summah This Summah That, and Summahtology. Exuding fun and charm, the stand-up has managed to avoid becoming an annoying one-trick pony. On the podcast Who Charted? Kremer, cohost/"chart keeper" Kulap Vilaysack, and fellow comics discuss what's topping the week's music, film, and other pop-culture charts. Vilaysack keeps things on track while still indulging Kremer's hilarious rants about the likes of Kanye West and the Kardashians, taking any opportunity to mention summah. There's no word on whether Vilaysack or any guests will be at this live show, but it hardly matters; Kremer alone is enough to warm a chilly autumn night.

Fri 9/25, 7 PM, Schubas, 3159 N. Southport, lh-st.com, $12.
