You know how brothas are always chill about everything, and white boys are always all uptight and shit? That social phenomenon seems like a subject rife with comedic possibilities. Perhaps an aspiring young stand-up comic will create an observational routine about this dissimilitude and perform it for Def Comedy Jam executives at the show's official tryouts at noon Tuesday at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road in Dallas. Chosen contestants will perform at that evening's 8 p.m. showcase, hosted by BET Comic View's Rudy Rush, who also appeared on Chappelles Show. Sign-up is at firstname.lastname@example.org.
