Rod Paulette 

When: Thu., July 14 2016
Ohio comedian Rod Paulette, who returns to his home state to perform tonight at the Improv, has a deep voice that seems to carry through the room as he makes fun of racial issues. Like Donald Glover, Paulette plays off the stereotype of being a black man who acts white and he jokes about some of the struggles he’s subsequently encountered. In one act, he talks about how people on the West Coast always assume he grew up on a farm because he’s from Ohio. “When’s the last time you saw a black man on a farm without a chain on his foot keeping his ass there?” he asks. “If you ever see a black man on a farm, sneak up on him, tap him on the shoulder and let him know he’s free.” Paulette performs tonight at 7:30 and has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets are $12. (William Hoffman)
