Aries Spears

Comedian Aries Spears, one of the longest-serving cast members on Fox’s hit late-night comedy series MADtv, isn’t shy. He has an opinion — and a few jokes — about any and everything. And yes, he’s happy to share them with you...for the small price of $25 a ticket. The Chicago native, a regular on the national comedy scene for more than 20 years, is most well-known for his impersonation skills. Throughout his MADtv run, Spears impersonated more than 45 celebrities, ranging from Sean “Diddy” Combs to Magic Johnson and even Chaka Khan and Queen Latifah. Celebrities aren’t Spears’s only targets. Random strangers and relatives, including his mother, routinely make it into his act.

Spears has a three-day stand of his adults-only stand-up starting at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit improvhouston.com. $25 to $35.
Fri., Aug. 22, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 23, 7 & 9:30 p.m.; Sun., Aug. 24, 7:30 p.m., 2014
