Little Brings Big Laughs

I keep thinking this comic is Rich Little and any minute he's going to try to sell me Little Debbie Snack Cakes, but he's not. He is Rob Little who is "the biggest thing to happen to comedy in a long, long time," according to his bio. And you might actually recognize ol' Rob, as he's appeared on a ton of shows including these three blockbusters: The Best Damn Sports Show Period, Strictly Sex with Dr. Drew and Last Call with Carson Daly. Rob used to be a computer programmer at IBM until he Jerry Maguire-ed that shit and sent a company-wide email stating, "If you aren't happy here, quit your job and follow your dream." A little shortsighted as I, personally, actually have more than one dream, but I appreciate the sentiment nonetheless. Well, follow his dream he did -- right up on stage at Hyena's in Dallas where he'll prove himself as one of the most self-deprecating if not "Happiest Comic in America" (as dubbed by Last Comic Standing) Thursday through Saturday. Then he'll actually follow the dream some more to another location or maybe to meet Jennifer Love Hewitt, because that's what sorta-famous people get to do when they're following their dream. Admission is $10 and you have to purchase two items, like two shots for us. Head to hyenascomedynightclub.com/dallas for inforomation.
