Timmy P's comedy nights



If Sunday at Gracie's was a good time, Tuesday night at the Heidelberg was a party. The place was packed, and everyone was ready for some action. A few first-time performers got up, one with disastrous results, but the audience was kind. The geeky guy announced he had no girlfriend. The jocks yelled about football and drinking. I laughed a lot but also wondered, where are all the smart women — the ones who talk about politics instead of blow jobs?

Although many of the comics are local writers and actors, established performers "from Detroit and beyond" also come by to help out, according to Parkkila. Demetrius Nicodemus, from Toledo, has performed on Comedy Central and BET's Comic View. When a friend told him the government is taping everyone's phone calls, he said, "Really? Could they send me some of the shit I said when I was high? 'Cause that shit is funny." Then he slammed the girl who performed before him, saying, "Someday you'll make someone a great ex-wife." From my seat at the back of the house, I could see one of the geeky guys gently pat her shoulder.
