Wednesday To-Do: Sommore

SOMMORE
7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $35-$65

Is Robinson Center Music Hall becoming the state's classiest comedy club? In addition to the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, the regular theater tours and the occasional (usually stellar, always welcomed, hint hint) music act, we've seen Kevin Hart, Rodney Carrington and Mr. Brown & Cora of Tyler Perry's "Meet the Browns" dot the hall's schedule. The laughs must be plentiful, because this week brings yet another stand-up, Sommore. (That's "Sommore" as in "please, we want Sommore live music at Robinson this year.")

The comedienne and "Queens of Comedy" tour alum has been a regular guest on Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at the Apollo and BET's Comicview, featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show and has lost 30 pounds in front of the country during Celebrity Fit Club. On stage, she subscribes to the "I'm gonna say what you're thinking about dating, family, men and money except with more head bobs and cussin' " school of comedy. Funniest thing I've heard her say while writing this: "Gas is so high it makes you wanna bang a bus driver." I laughed. Also along for the ride: D.C. Curry of the "Friday" sequels and one of "P. Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy," Damon Williams.
