No Fuelin'

The only way to beat sky-high gas prices is to gag about it. Just ask Dave Landau.


Just in time for on-the-road summer vacations, comic Dave Landau cracks a few price-of-gas jokes during his tour stop this weekend in Cuyahoga Falls. He was recently watching the news and heard a dude say that a gallon of unleaded gas was still cheaper than, say, a gallon of OJ. "That's flawless logic, except for the fact that, every four days, I don't have to buy 20 gallons of orange juice," says Landau. The Detroit native honed his comedy chops with the Second City improv troupe, but he gradually gravitated toward stand-up routines because it made economic sense. "I kinda got tired of writing for other people," says Landau. "I decided, 'Why not write for me and make a lot more money?'" Showtimes are at 8:30 tonight and 8 and 10:30 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday at the Funny Stop, 1757 State Road in Cuyahoga Falls. Tickets are $7 to $12. Call 330-923-4700 or visit
Thu., July 17, 8:30 p.m.; July 18-19, 8 & 10:30 p.m., 2008
