Breaking good at the casino

Ranked in the top 20 of Rolling Stone’s 2017 list of favorite stand-up comedians, Bill Burr rolls into the Tucson comedy scene via the Southern Arizona route on Friday, Dec. 2. He’s performing at Desert Diamond Casino, Sahuarita as one of that venue’s select few comedy offerings. The show is at 8 pm; tickets are $35 to $60.50. Visit this website for tickets and more information.

Burr has produced five, hour-long stand-up specials, and the streaming, animated Netflix series, F is for Family, freshly picked up by the network for a third season. Burr also delivers a twice-weekly rant via his popular Monday Morning Podcast. He has appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and the Tonight Show with Jimmy Falon. Yet some will remember him best as Patrick Kuby in Breaking Bad.

Estrogen Hour’s offering up virgins, again.

At first, Jill Kimmel didn’t want to be known as Jimmy Kimmel’s sister. Naturally, it’s the one thing everyone wants to know since she recently reclaimed her maiden name. The issue was that she wanted to make it as a comedian on her own. Her accomplishments, including a featured role on season two of Comedy Central's Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City, and performances for US armed services around the world, have since tucked that under her belt. So with her family name, Kimmel headlines the December edition of Tucson’s celebration of women’s comedy, The Estrogen Hour. The show is at 6:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 3, at Laff’s Comedy Caffe. Make reservations at tinyurl.com/Estrogen123. All proceeds from the $15 admission benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Veteran Tucson comedian Nancy Stanley hosts TEH, which she co-founded with Mary Steed. Dec. 3’s first-time comedians, called Comedy Virgins, include Linda Chorney, Shann Oliver, and Leigh Spencer. Repeat Estrogen performers are Tucson comedians Lisa Andris, Charlotte Bellflower, Jennifer Finley, Cindell Hanson, Edna Meza Aguirre, Suzie Sexton and your humble scribe, Linda Ray.

Aw. Remember kvelling for that li’l tree?

Hearts warm. Tear ducts leak. And everyone is that broken little tree, looking for love. Arizona Rose Theatre Company, the little theater that could, is staging Charlie Brown’s Christmas in their pop-up space across from the Container Store in Tucson Mall. Following the short play, the show includes a revue of familiar holiday music.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday; through Dec. 10. Admission is $15; less for children and military; $2 more at the door. Make reservations online.
