Here's what I want to know: Do clowns tell dirty jokes? Now, I'm not talking about creepy "Here's some candy, little girl" pretend-clowns, or scary Tim Curry-in-the-gutter clowns. I'm talkin' pro. Chas Elstner is a former Barnum & Bailey circus clown turned touring comic. He's graced not only the stages, but networksVH-1, MTV, FOX and (oh, yeah) Playboy and Showtimeso you know he's worth his mike. But after making folks laugh the three-ring way, he's got some big shoes to fill (ba dum bum!). See Elstner 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. Friday or 7, 9 and 11 p.m. Saturday at Hyenas Arlington, 2525 E. Arkansas Lane. Admission is $10 to $15 (with a two-item minimum). Call 817-226-5233 or visit hyenascomedynightclub.com.
