7/16: Keith Wann at Bogey's Comedy Club

by

comment

Keith Wann is something you don’t see every day: an American Sign Language comedian. Among other things, he uses extreme facial expressions to tell jokes. Wann has also served as an interpreter for Broadway plays and musicals (like Shrek, the Musical and Little Shop of Horrors), played an extra on Law & Order and teaches other interpreters how to analyze lyrics. His standup routine is designed to appeal to both deaf and hearing audiences. Opener Lliana Carerra is the gay daughter of a Baptist Minster and deaf mother. She goes on at 8 p.m. at Bogey’s Comedy Club (28060 Chardon Rd., 440.944.9000). Tickets: $20. — Amy Booker
