Will he be high? I hope he'll be high. He'll be high. A 2009 finalist for Funniest Dallas Comic, Dustin Ybarra has performed at the NBC Diversity Comedy Showcase hosted by Bill Bellamy and just finished filming Gay Dude. He's in Fort Worth this Friday and Saturday at Hyena's. Come out and see him and his glorious fro wax poetic about Chipotle, his friend's babies, and (of course) weed.
Sean Patton has been everywhere -- Caroline's, The Comedy Cellar, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham
. He's even made it on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
. And now he's here. Come hear him bitch about child owners (versus parents) and his shitty hair (keep him away from butterfly knives). Shows are Thursday through Sunday and tickets
are available online. 21+ only.
Landon Kirksey, sometimes called the fat James Spader, will be at Dallas Comedy House this Thursday. Landon's hosted Dallas Comedy House's open mic for three years now, so he knows the ropes here in Dallas. He might even invite some of his favorites on stage. Come out and see Landon, a 10-year veteran of the comedy and improv scene, this Thursday at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are only $10.
Eight teams will battle to become the next Extreme Improv Challenge Champion this Saturday at Cafe Bohemia at 9:30 p.m. The best part? The audience decides who wins it all and who goes home questioning their place in the world. The show is rated R and tickets are only $5.
Ok, before I say anything, let me just list some of the cast for you. Ready?
- Colin Farrell
- Woody Harrelson
- Sam Rockwell
- Christopher fucking Walken
And that's just some of them. Seven Psychopaths, which we review here
, follows a broke screenwriter who gets caught up in LA's underground crime world after his crazy friends kidnap a gangster's one true love -- his Shih Tzu. It opens this Friday, and you can count on some showtimes being sold out. Get to the theatre early. Rated R, like any good comedy.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
