No, Not Those Killers

If you're one of Howard Stern's faithful followers who long ago migrated over to Sirius Satellite Radio, then you're probably already familiar with the performers on his Killers of Comedy tour, and you're most likely reading this with a ticket to the upcoming show clutched tightly in your meaty paw. You're probably familiar with Jim Florentine's Special Ed character from Crank Yankers, as well as his numerous contributions to Stern's terrestrial and satellite shows over the years. And you're probably aware that he appears on other Howard 101 programs, including the "Miserable Men" show hosted by fellow Killers tourmates Shuli and the Reverend Bob Levy, who you also know and love. And you'll no doubt be acquainted with Stuttering John's rigorously auditioned replacement, Richard Christy. Old-school and newfound fans alike will recognize longtime Stern regulars Yucko the Clown, Sal the Stockbroker and the one and only Beetlejuice. Knowing all of this, statistically speaking, you are probably also a low-risk sex offender. The Killers of Comedy perform Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Parkway. Tickets are $30. Call 214-821-7469 or visit
Sat., Dec. 9, 7:30 p.m.
