JIM BREUER LISA LAMPANELLI

FRIDAY, MAY 8 | SATURDAY, MAY 9, DURHAM

THE CAROLINA THEATRE—Back to back, two veteran comics are doing one-night stands at the Carolina this week. First up is Jim Breuer, the Saturday Night Live vet (remember Goat Boy?) with the stoner smile (but he's not a smoker—he even wrote a book titled I'm Not High) who once described his style of clean comedy as "Bill Cosby, but with a Metallica shirt." Yeah, let's hope he's found another way to describe it. The next night, we have Lisa Lampanelli, the insult comedian who has shed a lot of weight—100 pounds, to be exact—but is still vulgar and loudmouthed as ever. (Hell, the name of her tour is the Leaner Meaner Tour.) So there you have it: clean versus crude, all-ages versus mature audiences ... good versus evil? Well, it all depends on how you like your standup. Breuer: 8 p.m. Fri., $22–$80.38; Lampanelli: 7 and 10 p.m. Sat., $37–$75.50; 309 W. Morgan St., Durham, 919-560-3030, www.carolinatheatre.org. —Craig D. Lindsey
