Jon Lovitz at Hilarities

When: Thu., April 21 2011

You know him from his Emmy-nominated roles on Saturday Night Live ("Yeah, that's the ticket!") and countless performances in films like The Wedding Singer. And then there was that recent Hot in Cleveland guest spot. But now the comedian with the distinctive nasal whine brings his standup routine back to Hilarities for five shows over the course of three nights. His last stop here came about a year ago, but clearly the dude digs us. "It's the strangest thing," he says. "I know the economy there is rough, but the people are just so nice. That's the reason I wanted to come back." As for his shtick, Lovitz says his standup goes "from clever to childish. Anything that makes me do a double-take or that I think is ridiculous, I just throw in: sex, religion, politics. Plus, I play a little piano and sing too!" Tonight's extravaganza starts at 8 p.m. and is for the 21-and-over crowd only. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online at or by calling 216-736-4242. Hilarities is inside the Pickwick & Frolic entertainment complex at 2035 East Fourth St. — Maxwell Hayden
