This week's happenings in the Louisville comedy scene:

It's a different world...

Actor and comedian Sinbad arrived on the comedy scene with a "hit’em in the face" style of comedy that has kept audiences laughing in the aisles for over the past two decades. Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time, Sinbad has built a loyal following by taking audiences’ painful trials or embarassing tribulations of day-by-day life, throwing them back in their faces, and causing an uproar of comedic hysteria.

Sinbad is internationally known for his starring appearances in hit movies like “Jingle All the Way,” playing opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger; “Houseguest” co-starring the late Phil Hartman, and let’s not forget his film debut “Necessary Roughness”, where he did none of his own stunts! He has starred in the television sitcom “A Different World” as well as his own series, “The Sinbad Show”.

Watch this video of Sinbad to get a glimpse of his stand-up act and catch him at The Improv (at 4th Street Live) this weekend on Friday 9/9 and Sunday 9/11. Tickets are $25. [more information]

Reintegrate and appreciate...

Michael Malone takes many forms on stage, his intense yet worried persona consistently makes him a crowd favorite. He stands out from his peers with his rubber face, energy, sarcasm and wildly imaginative views on life experiences. Malone has performed in more than 27 states and has been featured on the Bob and Tom radio show. 

Modern times call for the humor of a Renaissance man & no one fits the bill better than comedian Jon Stites. A trilingual, former Spanish professor, Stites blends the keen observations of an academic with the common sense of an Average Joe. He is part scholar, part thug, part sociolinguist, & part urban redneck; the sum of which is a truly universal performer. Stites tours clubs around the country regularly as part of his tour "Operation Comedy", which honors our brave soldiers.

Watch this video of Michael Malone or Jon Stites for a sneak preview of their acts - they'll be performing at Comedy Caravan this week from Thursday 9/8 through Sunday 9/11. Also featuring Cleveland Jackson. Tickets are $10-$15.

Class is in session...

So, you think you're funny? You can have a career in stand-up comedy or just the most enjoyable and exciting hobby you'll have in your entire life. The Improv at 4th Street Live is now offering comedy classes to the public - so if you're tired of just sitting in the audience and would rather be the one getting the laughs and the applause, register for their upcoming class starting this Saturday. For more information and to sign up for their 'Underground Comedy School', visit their website.

Why you don't show up late to a comedy show...

In his recent appearance in Louisville, comedian Mike Brody decides to make the best out of a late-arriving bachelorette party - by pranking them. Watch the video here and let that be your warning - don't come late to a show or this could happen to you!

As always, visit the Louisville Comedy website for more daily comedy goodness from the city's talented stand-up comics. We hope to see you at a show real soon - keep Louisville funny!
