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. Frank Nicotero (October 12–14), the beloved host of the hit comedy game show Street Smarts and the voice of TruTV America’s Caught on Camera, shows off his stage wiles in a commanding set of sarcastic standup. On November 1–4, Greg Warren of Comedy Central’s Premium Blend toggles through a roster of different characters as he riffs on society and the blues of working in the service industry. Hickory, North Carolina’s Jon Reep (November 8–10), known to many as “that Hemi guy” from a series of Dodge Ram commercials, delivers doublewide laughs during a southern-fried act that led to his victory on the fifth season of Last Comic Standing. With his signature professorial look and gravity-defying hair, the sharply dressed and sharp-witted TV mainstay Greg Proops of Whose Line Is It Anyway? fame mines laughs by the seat of his pants on November 16–17. 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).
