Comedy Corner: Bruce Bruce, Dave Coulier lead the week in Cleveland comedy

Posted By on Wed, Apr 9, 2008 at 7:50 AM

Unless you recognize a comedian’s name as That Girl From that Movie or the Dude from That One HBO Special, it can be hard to tell whether a stand-up is worth seeing. Lucky you: Scene did the legwork, and the skinny on this week’s big comedy shows, video included, is just a click away. This week, the Lime Pimp from Beauty Shop, Joey from Full House, and more. Read on for a full rundown. – D.X. Ferris Comedian: Bruce Bruce (video above) Dates: Friday, April 11 through Sunday, April 13. Specialty: Hailed as “The Mayor of Comedy,” Bruce specializes in profanity-free adult comedy. He’s appeared on BET and Comedy Central, and you may have seen him as Dewayne alongside Snoop and Dre in The Wash, or as the Lime Pimp in Beauty Shop. Playing: The Improv, 2000 Sycamore St., East Bank of the Flats, 216-696-4677, Tickets: $26 Showtimes: Fri, Sat: 8 and 10:15 p.m. Sunday: 7 p.m. Comedian: Dave Coulier Dates: Thursday, April 10 through Sunday, April 13. Specialty: Dave Coulier played Joey on Full House, and he turns in an appropriately PG-rated fare, like a bit about talking dogs and his dead-on Bullwinkle and Elmer Fudd voices. Playing: Pick & Frolic’s Hilarities E. 4th St. Theater, 2035 E. 4th St., Downtown, 216-736-4242, Tickets: $15-25. Showtimes: Thu, Sun: 8 p.m. Fri-Sat: 7:30 and 10:15 p.m. Comedian: Nathan Timmel Dates: Tuesday, April 8 through Saturday, April 12 Playing: The Funny Stop, 1757 State Road, Cuyahoga Falls, 330-923-4700, Speciality: Timmel riffs on the art of fitness, lawyers, a solution for Afghanistan, war ribbons, and “the liquification of meaning.” Showtimes: Tue-Thu: 8:30 p.m. Fri, Sat: Two shows: 8 and 10:30 p.m. Tickets: $5-$16, two-drink minimum.
