Sat., June 22, Joe Klocek
Capital Stage, 8 p.m., $20-$25
Joe Klocek has all the comedy tools. His material is crisp, his timing is excellent and his ability to riff with a crowd is legendary (the YouTube clip of him dealing with a heckler has more than 837,000 hits). After more than 20 years of comedy clubs and one-nighters, Klocek is bringing his act to the Capital Stage. That's right: No more two-drink minimums and drunken hecklers. Just Klocek and his jokes. I asked him if there was anything he wanted to say about this show: “I'm a genius, but I'm depressed, so see me now!” were his exact words. You'd better hurry. 2215 J Street, www.standupjoe.com.
