Your Mother Likes It in the Backdoor

Tired of being the redheaded stepchild of the family regardless of whether or not you actually have red hair? Would you like to get back in your mother’s will without having to file some kind of court order or enact a legal scheme that may one day become the convoluted plot of another John Grisham novel? You can start by remembering to take her out for Mother’s Day. The Doubletree Hotel’s Backdoor Comedy showcase and their rotating collective of seasoned comics will put on a special Mother’s Day Show to help celebrate the woman who endured unspeakable pain just to bring you into this world. Comedian Dean Lewis will host two shows, at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., and if you have to be reminded at this point that Mother’s Day is on Sunday, you might want to tattoo it on something now. The Doubletree Hotel is located 8250 N. Central Expressway.
Sun., May 11, 5:30 & 7:30 p.m., 2014
