Shawn & Marlon Wayans at the Addison Improv These two brothers of In Living Color and White Chicks fame are in Addison Thursday through Saturday. Come see 'em bust out some tandem comedy about everything from Twitter to Marlon's movie muscles, and try to keep up with the back and forth. It's like a game of Pong in overdrive.
Good Morning Apocalypse at the Dallas Comedy House Screw waiting to find out how the world ends. Let the Dallas Comedy House do it for you! Good Morning Apocalypse is a comedy sketch show that explores what will cause our demise, and the amazing aftermath that will follow. The show will run Saturdays, December 8th, 15th, and 22nd (Mayans permitting). Advanced reservations are recommended.
Tommy Blaze at Hyena's in Dallas Featured on Maxim's Real Men of Comedy Tour, Blaze has the perfect solution for fighting couples: stop talking. All arguments start with someone saying the wrong thing, right? Bullet-proof theory, Blaze. This "guy's guy" comedian will be in Dallas this Thursday through Saturday.
Kyle & Drew at the Dallas Comedy House You know those annoyingly cute couples who can read each other's mind and complete each other's sentences? Kyle and Drew are like that, minus the sex and annoying bit. These guys get on stage, and you would swear they've rehearsed, but it's all improv. A must see, they perform Fridays at 10:30 p.m.
Lay the Favorite at Cinemark Plano Movies 10 Want something involving $20 popcorn and soda? Head out to Plano and check out the new flick Lay the Favorite, starring Bruce Willis, Vince Vaughn, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Laura Prepon. A bit of a love triangle mixed up with sports gambling, we have high hopes for the ensemble. Opens Friday.
