Sometime in 2018, when the cooking show competition bubble popped, something beautiful emerged. Instead of heated competition between the top tier of chefs, bakers, and makers, along came a show called Nailed It!, which celebrates an A-for-effort spirit with host and comedian Nicole Byer.

No one is better suited to let people down gently, as well as celebrate — and laugh at — the ugliest, most demented-looking, shitty-tasting cakes, cookies, and treats quite like Byer, who is as sweet as she is funny. Oh, she also hosts the Why Won’t You Date Me? podcast, where she dishes on her chronic blow-job-loving single life with guests who may or may not have the answer to the podcast’s titular question.

Doors open at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, at the Majestic Theatre; 4140 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-9700; majesticdetroit.com. Tickets are $25+.
