At Pittsburgh Improv, comics lure laughs from bellies in the hopes of following in the footsteps of standup legends such as Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Dave Chappelle, all of whom have graced the Improv club stages. The calendar schedules comedians as often as six nights a week, alternating between big-name headliners and up-and-comers who tickle funny bones with fresh material, abundant energy, and feathered reflex hammers. Blue Collar Comedy Tour alumnus Juston McKinney (September 13–15) is known for mixing wry wisdom about fatherhood with high-energy tales of dining in expensive restaurants. Orlando Jones takes the stage September 21–23, exuding a conversational style and the charismatic stage presence he honed while portraying football player Clifford Franklin in the 2000 film The Replacements and dancing in the Broadway revival of The Wiz.
Audience members munch on their choice of a savory appetizer, such as spinach-and-artichoke dip or buffalo wings, while sipping a cocktail to avoid eye contact with the giant rubber chicken sitting at the next table (drinks not included with this Groupon).
