Richard Lewis is bringing his "Misery Loves Company Stand-Up Tour" to the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. I'll tell you one thing for sure, if you have something whiny to say, go sit by him. I don't want to hear your shit, but he probably will. And he'll likely do you one better. Lewis has said, "I go on a long tour and make people happy theyre not me and go home." His special brand of neuroses has led him to be called "the Jimi Hendrix of monologists," which actually makes no sense whatsoever. Especially considering he's not even a little dead, doesn't wear tight pants that show his junk and can't play guitar for shit. Comparison debunked or not, Richard Lewis is a must see. Catch him Thursday through Sunday at The Improv. Check improv.com for show times. Coupons, passes and cheerfulness not accepted at the shows, but here's a fun fact to make up for it: Lewis coined the phrase "the [blank] from hell." It's true. The 2006 Yale Book of Quotations says so.
