Dan Cummins

Dan Cummins doesn’t like to be interrupted when using public bathrooms. (Who does?) So when people keep jiggling the handle and knocking on the door of a locked, single-occupancy restroom, Cummins has a plan. “I want to take off all my clothes except for my underwear and then answer the door confused,” Cummins says. “Can I help you? I think you got the wrong house, buddy. Now, get off my porch!”

When he isn’t stripping and surprising rude people, Cummins is making regular appearances on the comedy radio program The Bob & Tom Show. He’s also had his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, been a guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and opened for notables such as Ron White, Jim Gaffigan and Dave Attell.

Cummins has other pet peeves, too, such as pop-up ads for programs to block pop-up ads, and fake vegetarians. “I’m amazed at how many people say they are vegetarians and then add, ‘but I eat a little chicken,’” Cummins says. “Well, then you’re not a vegetarian; you’re what’s known as a liar.” 8:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Laff Stop, 526 Waugh. For information, call 713-524-2333 or visit www.laffstop.com. $15 to $25.

Wed., May 28, 8:30 p.m.; Thu., May 29, 8:30 p.m.; Fri., May 30, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., May 31, 8 & 10:30 p.m., 2008
