While Edinburgh comic Danny Bhoy has a unique worldview thanks to his half-Indian and half-Scottish heritage, his comedy has more in common with the harmless, lighthearted observational comedy of fellow Scotsman Craig Ferguson than anything politically or racially provocative. For instance, at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, he shared advice that a friend gave him before visiting Canada. "'If you see an angry bear, pretend to be dead,'" he says in a refined brogue. "Are you sure? I woon't be pretending for long. It's a bear that's already angrrrry. The last thing I should be doing is playing a practical joke on it." That said, he'll make the occasional haggis or bagpipe joke. Bhoy performs Wednesday through Saturday, April 3, at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. Tickets are $15 to $17. Call 972-404-8401 or visit improv.com for tickets and showtimes.
