Brad Williams

Every cringe comic can spout off a list of midget and dwarf jokes like a high school chemistry student reciting the list of noble gases for a verbal exam. Brad Williams has heard them all. The diminutive comic may be physically small but his bold and animated presence can take up the biggest of stages. He started by catching the attention of Carlos Mencia in the clubs who made him the opening act on two of his national tours and giving him parts on his Comedy Central show "Mind of Mencia." He has no problem joking about little people but his best material mixes his fresh spin on tested targets with his unique energy. See this not-so-small star of stand-up comedy at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., Saturday at Hyena's Comedy Nightclub (5321 E. Mockingbird Ln.).
