Prime Time Laughs

Comics seem to have a good track record at developing sitcoms. There's Jerry Seinfeld and Ray Romano, of course, but I also have to confess a liking for Kevin James' King of Queens. Now comic Kevin Brennan is developing a sitcom for NBC. We'll get to see if he can follow in the varied footsteps of his jokey predecessors. At the very least, the guy has some impressive lines on his comic résumé. In February, he took Best Comedian honors at the Aspen Comedy Festival. He also guest-starred on an episode of Spin City that TV Guide voted one of the 50 Funniest TV Moments of All Time. If he made that show funny for at least one second, his is a formidable talent. Catch Brennan April 12 through 15 at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. Tickets are $15. Call 972-404-8501.
April 12-15
