Comedian Jim David (pictured) grew up with a spreadable margarine-type product in his house called "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter." As he grew older, he realized: other countries have the same spread, but with different names. The U.K. version: "Are you absolutely convinced that it's not butter?... And what am I supposed to do with that information?" (It's funnier when he does it.) Catch the veteran comic at Bridge Street Live on Friday, with Mike Jacobs opening.
