    “…Jackson is best known for his movie roles”

    Anyone know if he’s funny?

    Now that Wiseacres (formerly in the basement of the Tysons Mariott) is no more, venues for comedy on a budget are scarce.

      my words exactly

  • Stitch_Jones

    Stand-up comedy in Arlington = same jokes we heard in the ’80s with less creative profanity sprinkled with “Ain’t Republicans evil?!” references.

    Stand-up comedy is dying. Not really going to miss it.

    • MC 703

      He is from Detroit. Your nonsensical comment is… nonsense.

      Al Carpenter?

    I’d much rather see Louis CK….
