Finesse Mitchell

Finesse Mitchell is fine. Seriously, boy looks good. We’re guessing if he isn’t bringing a date along to the Laff Stop’s New Year’s Eve celebration, which he’s hosting, he’ll definitely get a few takers before the ball drops at midnight. Ladies looking to get a leg up on the competition might want to check out Your Girlfriends Only Know So Much, Mitchell’s recently released book of advice on dating black men that spawned from his column in Essence magazine.

Mitchell is also known for his three-season run with Saturday Night Live and his appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. You’d think the combination of celebrity and hotness would mean Mitchell has an easy time with the ladies, but his stand-up tells a different story. Onstage he often talks about his experience on SNL and how he thought it meant he would get more play. “Where is all the sex I’m supposed to be getting? I’m on TV!” he says in one bit.

Mitchell says he finally got a girl to come over and, on a friend’s recommendation, took a dose of Viagra copycat Cialis. “Then she called and canceled,” he says, adding that from the looks of things, his drug-induced erection wasn’t going away for a while. “I tried to continue my night like it wasn’t even there…I’m sittin’ around on a Monday night watching CSI: Miami eating dry cereal,” he says, and pantomimes using his piece as a catapult to launch cereal into his mouth. That’s no way to ring in the New Year, so, ladies, please, help a brother out. 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. 526 Waugh. For tickets and information, call 713-524-2333 or visit $25 to $35.
Mon., Dec. 31, 7:30 & 10 p.m., 2007
