As the Asian guy on MADtv, long-serving cast member Bobby Lee has had plenty of opportunity to do Asian and non-Asian characters alike (Kim Jong-Il, Connie Chung, John McCain). In his standup routine, Lee professes something of a love/hate relationship with Texas. "One Mexican guy down there got me in a headlock and kept yelling, 'Hey, Chino!' I told him I was Korean. Maybe he thought I was a Mexican with Down syndrome." He also notes how many in the Lone Star State refer to his diminutive five-five size. "Texans go, 'Oh, look! One of the Pokmons!'" (Remember to shout, "Hey, Chino!" when Lee steps onstage; that's sure to make him feel welcome. Or give him flashbacks, one of the two.) 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $20.
Fri., Oct. 9, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 10, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 11, 7:30 p.m., 2009
