Comedian Aries Spears clearly has no qualms about messing with people that most others dont usually mess with, like hip-hop impresarios, gangsta rappers and enormous pro boxers with penchants for ear biting. The Chicago-born comedian does absolutely dead-on impressions of Jay-Z, DMX and Mike Tyson. He also imitates the likes of Robert De Niro and Schwarzenegger. After an eight-year stint on MADtv, in which he starred in skits with names like El Diablo Negro, Spears has become a regular on the stand-up comedy circuit and has something of a cult following, which should help everyone forget his er incongruous appearance in Josie and the Pussycats. 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Improv Comedy Club, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713333800 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $15 to $17.
Thu., May 22, 8 p.m.; Fri., May 23, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., May 24, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sun., May 25, 7:30 p.m., 2008
