With help from his character Leon Phelps, AKA “The Ladies Man,” Tim Meadows made romance synonymous with lisp-laced pickup lines and a snifter of Courvoisier. As a cast member on Saturday Night Live for 10 seasons, Meadows portrayed characters such as Leon and inhabited impressions of public figures that ranged from Bryant Gumbel to Dennis Rodman. After retiring from the late-night staple, Meadows branched out to the silver screen, starring in The Ladies Man and supporting Tina Fey in Mean Girls. Recently he’s returned to his roots—the veteran of Chicago’s Second City sketch comedy troupe is bringing his act back to the stage.
Dave Attell, the in-your-face, taboo-slaying, quintessential New Yorker knows how to get laughs and put down some beers. In fact, he’s made a career out of it. For seasons he put those principles to work in his Comedy Central show, Insomniac with Dave Attell. A travelogue, the show chronicled Attell as he smoked and slurped his way across North America, capturing late-night adventures while taking karate lessons in New York, ice fishing in Montreal, and talking to fans at a sci-fi convention in Chicago. On stage, Attell’s famously bald dome spouts a rapid-fire, cigarette-singed rasp that knows no bounds. His sets tear into the topics of race, sex, and, of course, drinking, including a bit in which he proposes a series of TV commercials for Jagermeister with vivid imagery involving a swing set, high heels, and a pumpkin.<p>
