Rebecca Corry live in 2011
Warning: contains real profanity and “mom” profanity
Rebecca Corry sets up jokes and knocks ‘em down at a merciless pace. But it’s her gift for autobiographical storytelling that increases the guffaws. After training in the arts of improv, acting, and comedic writing at Chicago institutions Second City and Annoyance Theater, she parlayed her talents into LA success, thus scoring roles on shows such as The King of Queens, her own Comedy Central Presents special, and the LA Weekly’s “Comedy Pick of the Week” for her one-woman show Rebecca Corry with Balls. In her latest performance, I Say Things about Things and Stuff, Corry reveals even more stinging observations about her life, stuff, and things.
Woodlands Tavern is a dive bar at heart, yet most dive bars don’t sport an immense selection of craft beers and a massive patio. Here, a firepit draws in patrons as if they were hops-loving moths, inviting them to watch performances from local and touring standup comedians as well as rock, jazz, and country acts. The stage stays separate from the bar, so guests can savor their drinks away from the music if they wish, in addition to late-night slices of pizza.
