Once again, well-scrubbed, smiling American Joel McHale gives his trademark "two thumbs up" to providing you with in-person laughs. Provided you provide him with money. Remember, in these troubled times, laughter is your best investment. Look for him in these ports o' call this month:
• Jan. 16 at the Murat Theater in Indianapolis.
• Jan. 17 at the Fillmore Detroit in, yes, Detroit.
• Jan. 18 at the Taft Theater in Cincinnati.
• Come Jan. 24, he'll be doing two shows at the Lincoln Theater during the South Beach Comedy Festival in Miami.
• Jan. 25 look for him in West Palm Beach at the Improv Comedy Club.
And there you have it.
