A former Clevelander, comedian and writer Jim Tews, the man behind The New York Times' best-selling Felines of New York, is a rising star in the comedy world.

He made his standup television debut on Last Comic Standing and has been featured in an episode of Louie. He was one of 2011's "New Faces" at Just For Laughs Montreal and has performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, as well as at SF Sketchfest.

Tews also recently created, co-wrote and starred in The Undone Sweaters web series about "a sociophobic Weezer cover band." Funny or Die and Nerdist.com posted the series. As if that weren't enough for his resume, the prolific Tews also created the HBO Labs' web series The Opener and recently directed Make Fun, a feature-length documentary about Cleveland's independent comedy scene.

Tews performs tonight at 7 at Hilarities. Tickets are $13 to $18.
