Aries Spears

Welcome to Houston, specifically to Houston in July, Aries Spears. Asked about the heat, Spears (as one of his many colorful comedic characters) replies, "It is so hot, girl, I be peeing steam!" Yeah, we can relate. Onstage, Spears, a seven-year veteran of FOX TV's MAD TV, spins from his over-the-top alter egos such as Belma Buttons to his signature dead-on impressions. Maybe he'll discuss the potential sale of basketball star and former Houston Rocket Charles Barkley: "I love Charles Barkley," Spears riffed in a recent concert, "but whatever is going in Charles's mind don't match what is coming out of his mouth. It's like his mind and mouth are playing Marco Polo. They're not on the same court."
