Jay Mohr has a resume a stand-up comedian - make that anyone looking to succeed in the entertainment business - would dream about. He's been seen on TV (Comedy Central specials, Saturday Night Live and, most recently, Gary Unmarried); starred on the silver screen (Jerry Maguire, Picture Perfect); created, hosted and produced his own hit show (Last Comic Standing); and scored a hot wife (Nikki Cox). All this, and he still finds time to hit the road with material covering everything from sports - a favorite subject - to politics to spot-on impressions of celebrities like Anthony Kiedis, Tracy Morgan and, most notably, Christopher Walken. See if he mixes in any professional advice with his punch lines at 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway.
