Lavell Crawford

When: Fri., May 20 2016

Some people are born funny while others grow into it. The latter seems to apply to Lavell Crawford, a stand-up comedian whose act primarily revolves around his upbringing in St. Louis and jabs at his weight and the women who’ve wronged him over the years. If his obesity-centric material weren’t enough, Crawford’s supremely goofy and aloof demeanor only helps to make him more likable. It helps to explain how he ended up finishing second in the fifth season of Last Comic Standing, which he has parlayed into appearances on Chelsea Lately, Breaking Bad, and Workaholics (“Eggs Tyrone,” anybody?). He performs tonight at 7:30 and 10 at the Improv, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets are $35. (Jacob DeSmit)
