Bobby Slayton is ass-nasty — and nicknamed the “Pitbull of Comedy.” He’s a Jewish guy in his 50s who self-admits he’s always been cranky. So at his shows in SoFla, Slayton might not use his Haitian cabdriver routine, but he’s bound to mortally offend someone.

For instance, he doesn’t like L.A.’s DMVs. “There are so many goddamn foreigners, it looks like the bar from Star Wars. You see a guy with a dot and a towel on his head. Half-Klingon, half-Pakistani.” He’s not fond of Mexico. “How disgusting is Mexico? It’s a dirty, filthy country. And you’d think with all the cleaning ladies that come out of there…” But he’s optimistic about the hell that “dickhead” white Christians have in store for us. “The Jews will cater, the blacks will entertain, the homos will decorate, and it’ll be one big fucking party.” Slayton goes for making you feel giggly and guilty at the same time.

Slayton performs at 8 p.m. at Fort Lauderdale Improv (5700 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Tickets cost $15.90. More shows are scheduled till Sunday. Call 954 981-5653, or visit improvftl.com.
