DAY OF ABSENCE written by DOUGLAS TURNER directed by NATHAN A. LILLY ARENA THEATRE A Reimagined Classic.

Arnez J

Fri., Nov. 16

Arnez J’s little brother is mentally handicapped, and gets him into trouble. Like that time at Burger King when he just wanted to buy his little bro a burger until his brother beat up a man who wanted their handicapped spot! His humor is all over the place as he talks about the violations of colonoscopies, ladies who need to cover the glue of their weaves and the way his Uncle Charlie dances. His Rodney King skit is hilarious and his observations of the world are pretty spot-on. This one promises to be funny. He performs tonight at 7:30 and 10 at the Improv, and performances run through Sunday. Tickets start at $25. (Liz Trenholme)

Dave Attell

Fri., Nov. 16

Known as the host of Comedy Central’s Insomniac with Dave Attell and The Gong Show, Dave Attell is also a great stand up comedian, writer and actor. A New York native, he graduated from NYU in 1987 with a degree in communications. During the day, he worked crappy jobs and did standup at night. After getting national exposure courtesy of David Letterman, his career took off. The caffeinated comic has a rapid fire delivery that suggests he has trouble turning his mind off. He performs tonight at 7:30 and 10 at Hilarities, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets are $30 to $35. (Niesel)

The Musical Theatre Project Presents: Just for Laughs

Sun., Nov. 18, 3-5:30 p.m.
phone 800-801-7407
,

What makes us laugh at a song in a musical? Sometimes it's the brilliant wordplay in a lyric (Yip Harburg's "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady"). Sometimes it's the shenanigans of an outrageous performer (Nathan Lane), or the character being played by that performer (Max Bialystock). Or sometimes it's all three, like Bert Lahr bellowing his way through the Cowardly Lion's "If I Were King of the Forest" in The Wizard of Oz. When that happens, we connect more deeply with our dreams, joys and frustrations. In short, our laughter brings us closer to ourselves. $30 - $55
