The Beards of Comedy Tour

March 30 The Beards of Comedy Tour Side Door Lounge, 3530 Leavenworth St. 7 p.m., $5, Four coincidentally bearded comedians are on a rampage across the United States and no, the jokes aren’t all about facial hair. In a concerted effort to spread infectious laughter among their audiences, their mission is clear: be as rowdy as possible. Aptly titled The “Beards of Comedy” Tour, comedians Andy Sandford, Joe Zimmerman, T.J. Young and Dave Stone bring a fresh approach to traditional stand-up comedy by avoiding clichéd mannerisms and observations about how “indie-cool” they might be. Together as a troupe since the end of 2008, their specialty is self-deprecating commentary on American culture with a healthy dosage of cynical intellectualism. The Beard’s debut album, Comedy for the People , is exactly that. With songs like “Myspace Pervert,” “Football Commercials” and “K Mart Smart,” there is something for everyone (well, except for those who have been living in a cave somewhere for the last 10 years with zero knowledge of pop-culture). The Beards of Comedy invade Omaha with all the trimmings. Be prepared to laugh your ass off.
