GOODNIGHTS COMEDY CLUB—At first glance, with the hair and the beard and everything, you might peg Rory Scovel as an Amish farmer, a folk singer or the leader of a commune cult. But he's none of those things. (Well, the jury's still out on cult leader.) He's a comic—a funny one. The Greenville, South Carolina, native has a gift for silly, observational humor, occasionally punctuated by out-of-nowhere bursts of white-guy rage. (He's been known to yell "Answer me!" when he throws a rhetorical question at the audience.) His eccentric musings have made him a fixture on Conan and landed him a writing gig on that temple of TV twistedness, Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show. He was also the brightest spot on the recently canceled TBS workplace sitcom Ground Floor, making that mediocre multi-camera fest tolerable whenever he entered a scene and just acted weird. 8 p.m. Thurs.; 7:30 and 10 p.m. Fri. and Sat., $17–$24, 861 W. Morgan St., 919-828-5233, www.goodnightscomedy.com.Craig D. Lindsey
