Thursday, March 10 - Steve Simeone at the Brea Improv - 8 pm, $12 (Tickets) I just got back from seeing Steve in La Jolla. Here are some things you should know about his set - it was so funny, people were reciting lines to each other as they walked to their cars, it makes me clap my hands with glee involuntarily, and even though I was kind of antsy from sitting in the normal audience seats I lost ALL track of time during his set and was shocked 40 minutes had gone by when he started to wrap it up.
