It was 1984 when Jon Lovitz started doing stand-up comedy; just one year later, he was on Saturday Night Live performing unforgettable, over-the-top characters like Tommy Flanagan, The Pathological Liar and Mephistopheles. Lovitz eventually left SNL for films; his résumé includes 3000 Miles to Graceland, Trapped in Paradise and The Producers. Now he’s back on the boards doing stand-up, and a two-day stint in Houston gives fans a chance to see one of the most consistently colorful characters ever to grace stage, screen and television. 8 and 10 p.m. Friday and 7 and 9 p.m. Saturday. Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit www.improvhouston.com.
