I Travel Lite!

When you’re as funny as Ali, a distinctively dapper style of dress is probably unnecessary. Nevertheless, at the I Travel Lite! show, the latest installment in The Good, the Bad & the Funny series, the local comedian will get your attention with his effusive stage costume as well as whatever bold affectation is on the sartorial menu. Fashion aside, Ali’s talent lies in autobiographical humor that’s so irreverent, you may forget it’s as clean as his fire-engine-red man-scarf. Standard material like family (sassy daughter jokes abound), race (white, black and “ghetto” voting behavior compared) and domestic violence (not as offensive as it sounds) feels fresh in Ali’s hands. He honed his skills on USO tours of South Korea and Japan and earned a spot on the 2008 season finale of Def Comedy Jam — Take this chance to say you saw him back in the day. 8 p.m. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $18 (two for $20).
