Revenge of the Nerds

Many people believe that hot, sexy, funny people such as those who perform stand-up comedy go home from the club every weekend with a hot new piece of groupie ass. As the saying goes, all rock stars really just want to be comedians, right? Wrong. Because as soon as they found out that there's no champagne room for joke writers, they'd be right back on the music bandwagon. Comedians are dorks—would Jerry Seinfeld or Jay Leno be scooping up the 'tang if they weren't raking in the dough? No way—and they're the popular kids! So imagine how incredibly dorky this week's Comedy From The Dorkside show will be—nary a Dane Cook-er in sight! The show features six great self-professed nerd locals: Darren Collins, Dustin Ybarra, Aaron Wardrum, Doug Weiss, Steve Awesome and Tom Devenport at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. The show's at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. Tickets are $12. Call 972-404-8501 or visit
Wed., Oct. 24, 8:30 p.m., 2007
