You Can… See Good Standup!

He delivered one of the most quoted and concise motivational speeches of our time in the H2O-jerking hospital scene of The Waterboy. Before that, his nickname-barraging SNL character drove officemates up the cubicle walls. We’re referring, of course, to none other than Rob Schneider, the Schneid-meister, The Great Robarino. Post-SNL, we’ve mostly known Schneider as a variety of wacky, ethnic spices in Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison dish (He’s the funny, weird guy with an accent in Big Daddy, 50 First Dates, and the list goes on), and for serving up sex and laughs as Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. Although he’s best known for these screw-loose characters, his credits also include directing, producing, and writing. But like many, he got his start as a stand-up comedian, and tonight and tomorrow night he’ll be returning to his roots at the Palm Beach Improv (550 S. Rosemary Ave., Suite 250, West Palm Beach). If you crave a little “You can do it!” motivation with your comedy, this show’s for you. Even though he might not deliver this rousing line, someone (maybe you) will. Friday’s shows begin at 8 and 10:30; Saturday’s shows begin at 7 and 9:15. Tickets cost $32.86. All shows, except for the 10:30 Friday show (18 and older), are 21 and up with a two drink minimum. Call 561-833-1812, or visit palmbeachimprov.com.
Fri., Nov. 13, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 14, 7 & 9:15 p.m., 2009
