John Evans

Sun., Dec. 11

Comedian John Evans began performing almost 20 years ago when he became the emcee at the Tulsa Comedy Club. Over the course of that time, he's opened for acts such as George Carlin, Dave Chapelle, Mitch Hedberg and Lewis Black. During his routines, he likes to act as if he's a dumb guy who shops at Thrift Stores and doesn't understand a simple metaphor like "the blood of 40 million abortions has stained U.S. soil." He performs tonight at 8 at Hilarities. Tickets are $13 to $18. (Niesel)

Rocky LaPorte

Thu., Dec. 15

In 1988, Rocky LaPorte quit his day job as a truck driver to become a professional comedian. Turned out to be a good move. LaPorte hasn’t forgotten his roots and in his stand-up routines, he makes simple observations about the oddities of life. In one performance, the comedian talked about putting your parents down as an emergency contact. “What are my parents going to do?” he joked. “‘Mrs. LaPorte your son has been in a horrific car accident.’ ‘Well give him some ice cream; he likes ice cream.’” It’s that sort of simple observation that makes LaPorte’s material stand out from the pack of other truck drivers turned comics. He performs tonight at 8 at Hilarities, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets start at $23. (William Hoffman)

Tony Rock

Thu., Dec. 15

While not as well known as his superstar brother, comedian Chris Rock, Tony Rock has plenty going for him. In one funny routine, he talks about the "whitest thing he ever saw." He recounts witnessing a citizen's arrest at an airport when a guy leaped into "full white guy mode" after he saw someone take an elevator "without authorization." A great storyteller, Rock performs tonight at 7:30 at the Improv, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets start at $17. (Niesel)
