Comic impressionist Alex Ortiz does a lot of cartoon characters in his stand-up act. Sesame Street's Grover and many of the classic Looney Tunes are favorites. He's also quite fond of Fat Albert, although he despised the corpulent cartoon as a kid. "He was broke, he lived in a ghetto — it was too close to home," says Ortiz. "He'd come on every week and say, 'Hey, hey, hey! How come your daddy be whuppin' on you?'"
