Greg Fitzsimmons is too funny to miss at Hilarities this weekend
Comedian Greg Fitzsimmons headlines Hilarities and Oscar winner Mo'Nique is at the Improv this weekend in Cleveland. Comedian Greg FitzsimmonsMichael K. McIntyre  Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the host of the Laugh Track column, a man who can't wait for kickoff ... Mike McIntyre. Thank you, Cleveland! Here we go, Brownies, here we go! This year's team most assuredly won't give us a championship, again. But the Browns give us something much more valuable: the gift of time. Three hours dedicated to yard work instead of football every Sunday? My place is going to look like the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Laughing Fitz: Greg Fitzsimmons is easily one of the best, most likable, most versatile stand-up comics in the world. The host of "The Greg Fitzsimmons Show" on Sirius XM radio and the "FitzDog" podcast, he ought to be headlining arenas he's so funny. So fans of comedy are in luck, because they'll get a much more intimate experience as he headlines Hilarities this weekend. In honor of the start of the NFL season, here are some of the thoughts he has shared onstage about NFL team names. "The Washington Redskins. Should they be able to call themselves the Redskins? I think that they should be able to. But then they can only draft actual Native Americans to play for the team." "Whatever your team says they are, that's what they should have to be. ... If you're the San Francisco 49ers, your entire team should be 49-year-old men. That's it. Just in the huddle complaining about hemorrhoids and bad backs." "The Chicago Bears should come out, real bears with helmets on, playing 11 dolphins. Dead on the field by half-time, just a stench in the stadium." Check out Fitzsimmons this weekend. Remember, you'll have all that extra time, thanks to the Browns. He performs at  8 p.m. Thursday ($23), 7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday ($25), and 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday ($28) at Hilarities, inside Pickwick & Frolic restaurant, 2035 East Fourth St., Cleveland. Call 216-736-4242. And if you want to laugh with a real Browns fan about the Browns, show up on time, as very funny local comic Brian Kenny hosts the shows. Fitzsimmons is done after Saturday. On Sunday, Emily Galati headlines at 7 p.m. She made her debut this year on "Conan." She doesn't understand it when people say birth control is against their religion. "Not getting pregnant is the only thing I pray about. I go to church on Christmas and Easter and weeks I'm late. That's it," she says. Catch Galati at 7 p.m. Sunday at Hilarities. Tickets are $18. At the Improv: Comedian Mo'Nique is always a big hit at the Improv. She'll be delivering the laughs and showing off her svelte self this weekend. (She's been posting videos to Instagram, and making news, with her weight loss.) Mo'Nique won the 2010 best supporting actress Oscar for her role in "Precious." She performs at the Improv at 7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday, and 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday ($40). The Improv is at 1148 Main Ave., next to Shooters on the west bank of Cleveland's Flats. Call 216-696-4677.
