You know that friend who doesn't drink or get high anymore, but he's always telling crazy-ass tales from when he did? I don't mean mundane stories about passing out on bar stools or pissing in washing machines; I mean stories about stealing telephone poles, setting them ablaze and falling into the bonfire. You eventually suspect that he's bullshitting, but the stories are so funny and over-the-top that you don't want to interrupt them. You know that friend? Christopher Titus is like a professional version. His special, Norman Rockwell Is Bleeding, is full of booze and dope war stories, along with tales of family dysfunction. Titus performs at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday, 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, and 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. Tickets are $25 at 972-404-8501 or symfonee.com/improv/addison.
Fri., Sept. 5, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 6, 6:30 & 9:30 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 7, 7:30 p.m., 2008
