Taking advice from a comedian seems an inadvisable proposition, but Greg Behrendt is a different sort of stand-up comic. He saw his name on The New York Times Best Seller List for He's Just Not That Into You, a 2004 self-help book he co-authored about why John Q. Handsome didn't come up for coffee. (Hint: "When it comes to men, deal with us as we are, not how you'd like us to be.") And maybe Behrendt is qualified to dispense wisdom - he's married with two kids, has been sober for longer than a decade, has a successful Comedy Central special on his résumé and has consulted for Sex and the City, an episode of which inspired his book.
This isn't an autograph session or a seminar, though - expect close to an hour of new material featuring the energetic ruminations of a man who's both funnier and better adjusted than you. 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For tickets and information, call 713-333-8800 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $22.
Thu., Oct. 23, 8 p.m.; Fri., Oct. 24, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 25, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 26, 7:30 p.m., 2008
