Comic Rob Little at the Improv

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through March 5 2012

Maybe it’s because he went from the boring world of computer programming to a career as a standup comic, but Rob Little is all laughs — not that you’d expect anything less from a guy whose tagline is “pure optimism.” Bald, baby-faced, and well upholstered, the Detroit native makes his Cleveland debut this weekend at the Improv, on the West Bank of the Flats, with a routine that pokes fun at himself, his family, and his love of food. (“I’m a crazy fool for diners,” he tells us. “Someday I’d like to own one!”) Much of the material we’ll hear this weekend is slated for an upcoming CD. Also, Little says he’s shopping around a pilot for a TV show on history. “I call it ‘A Little History with Rob Little!’ Isn’t that adorable?”

Price: $17 to $20
