SICK OF STUPID COMEDY TOUR

MOTORCO MUSIC HALL, DURHAM

SUNDAY, JAN. 24

While it's subtitled "A Southern Comedy Experience," the Sick of Stupid Comedy Tour features a trio of funnymen who have gone to great lengths to distance themselves from famous comic yokels like Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy (both of whom will be at DPAC this month, by the way). In fact, the show is billed as "the antithesis of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour," promising to dispense, amid all the jokes, socially conscious insights that people don't usually equate with down-South folk. Leading this progressive comedy charge is Greensboro's Tom Simmons, whose brand of mad-as-hell-and-not-gonna-take-it-anymore stand-up has led to performances on Comedy Central, Showtime and BET. (My favorite of his credits is as a writer for BET's ComicView.) Joining him are North Carolinian Cliff Cash and Kentucky native Stewart Huff, two fellow cranks who share Simmons' love for pointing out how imbecilic our culture has become. These three pale riders have been hitting venues all over the country this month, letting people know that not everybody from the South is an overalls-wearing hillbilly. 8 p.m.,

$12, 723 Rigsbee Ave., Durham, 919-901-0875,
