Nice Tosh

It's a bleak era for comedy. The laughers of the world are trapped with the underdeveloped humor of Carlos Mencia and the pointless dimwittedness of network sitcoms. But Daniel Tosh is a bit different. He's not particularly revolutionary in approach, nor does he have any slapstick gimmicks, but he's actually kind of normal and that’s what makes him refreshing. His sarcastic and haphazard jokes play like a firing line of head-shaking, belly-rumbling fun that will leave you quoting his pessimistic punch lines all week. And the college kids love him, which is always a good sign. (No wonder—he has appeared at more than 700 college campuses across the nation.) See him through Sunday at Addison's Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. After all, more than a million college kids can’t be wrong. For showtimes and reservations call 972-404-8501.
