DL Hughley

Fri., Oct. 19

Not many people can fire off the quick, witty jokes like DL Hughley. He can take serious matters like race relations and spin them into sidesplitting satire, tiptoeing along the edge of offensive and hilarious, yet still remaining totally loveable. Nothing is off limits for this guy. Funny subjects include Paula Deen, high blood pressure, Superbowl commercials and Cuban Olympic swimmers. He performs tonight at 7:30 and 10 at the Improv, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets are $35. (Liz Trenholme)

Whitney Cummings

She's even written a book (I’m Fine and Other Lies) and directed a film (The Female Brain). She likes to talk about feminist issues and given the current political climate should have plenty of new material for the shows that take place tonight and tomorrow night at 7 and 9:30 at Hilarities. She performs at the club on Sunday at 7 p.m. as well. Tickets start at $30. (Niesel)
