The World's Funniest Poker Player

Brad Garrett's voice or face has appeared in every movie you've ever seen (Ratatouille!) and most of the ones you haven't (Hoodwinked II: Hood vs. Evil). He's a fine poker player (who contributed maybe the funniest-ever moment to Celebrity Poker Showdown, when he suddenly began channeling Bill Cosby in front of the Cos' former costar, Malcolm Jamal-Warner, making Malcolm nearly piss himself), and an even better standup (because he's got a huge physical presence, a quick wit, and a throat he can manipulate to produce pretty much any sound in the world). Garrett's coming to Seminole Hard Rock (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood) on Friday, along with Dean Napolitano. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and tickets cost $35 to $55.
