Comic Tragedy

Comedian Gary Owen is apparently down with the brothers. The only white host of BET's Comicview (I assume he got the job with one of his really lame gay jokes, like the one where Barney has sex with Arnold Schwarzenegger), he's also had bit parts in Eddie Murphy's Daddy Day Care, Martin Lawrence's Rebound and the Wayans brothers' soon-to-be-classic Little Man. If you haven't thrown up in your mouth yet, head on out to the Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road in Addison, where Owen headlines Wednesday through August 6. Tickets are $15. Call 972-404-8501 or visit
Wed., Aug. 2, 8:30 p.m.; Thu., Aug. 3, 8:30 p.m.; Fri., Aug. 4, 8:30 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 5, 7, 9 & 11 p.m.; Sun., Aug. 6, 7:30 p.m.
