11/3: Frank Del Pizzo at Hilarities



Frank Del Pizzo used to crack jokes when he was a mechanic. If customers asked a stupid question, he would follow with a stupid answer. He joked around so often, they wondered if he was there to fix their car or make them laugh. After working 10 years in a New Jersey garage, Del Pizzo graduated to stand-up comedy in the ’80s, when a club opened a block from his old job. Del Pizzo is a clever, quick-witted humorist who draws material from real-life experiences. He’s opened for Don Rickles, Sam Kinison, Drew Carey and Dave Chappelle. A playful, interactive comic who enjoys toying with his audience, Del Pizzo performs at 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow at Hilarities (2035 E. 4th St., 216.241.7425). Tickets: $15. — Ed Condran
