Jim Breuer's current comedy tour, "Heavy Metal Family Man," swings close to our orbit this weekend, and that probably warrants a trip up to the Hu Ke Lau in Chicopee. We know Breuer from from his memorable roles (yes, including Goat Boy) on Saturday Night Live, film appearances (like the hilarious stoner Brian in Dave Chappelle's Half Baked), weekly Sirius/XM Radio show "Fridays With Breuer" and his autobiography, I'm Not High (But I've Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior). But his natural habitat is the stand-up circuit, which is where he's wanted to be from as far back as his high school days in Long Island. Catch a true stand-up samurai in action.
Aug. 18, 7 p.m. & 10:30 p.m., $25, Hu Ke Lau, 705 Memorial Drive, Chicopee, Mass., (413) 593-5222, hukelau.com.
