Comedy events in Dallas-Fort Worth, March 3-9
Weird comedy is coming to DFW this weekend.
Serious question: Have you ever been hypbrotized? I can't say for sure that I believe in this stuff, but Leroy “Hypno Bro” Williams might change your mind at The Improv in Arlington Wednesday night. He started out as a comedian, so he's still got the funny thing going on, but then he will throw in some weird hypnosis tricks. One writer calls him, “Arguably the only black stand-up comedian/hypnotist in the country (if you don't count Baptist preachers).”
Thursday through Sunday
Apparently Huggy Lowdown isn't a big Cowboys fan, which should make his weekend shows at The Improv in Arlington interesting. He can be heard on the syndicated radio broadcast Tom Joyner Show and is known for comedy and celebrity gossip stunts.
Friday and Saturday
Not to be confused with Dennis Blair, the director of national intelligence, this Dennis Blair is a stand-up comedian. He was in Easy Money, the 1983 flick with Rodney Dangerfield. YouTube fans called this his “vocal dyslexia” bit funny-as-hell:
Dennis Blair’s Vocal Dyslexia
Friday through Sunday

He's also pretty funny, in that perverted white guy kind of way.
Dallas Comedy House, which is turning out some pretty funny guys, is hosting Maestro every Saturday at 10 p.m. It's Whose Line Is It Anyway? style improv, where comedians play elimination rounds until one comic is left standing. It's only $10.
Have you been to a StorySLAM? Mouth in Dallas his hosting one on Tuesday. The evening will feature people telling a story that they think will inspire and entertain the audience. The story has to be told in five minutes or less. It's considered a “comedy” show, so here's hoping the people with stories to tell are funny.
