Gary Owen

Gary Owen is sort of the Vanilla Ice of comedy, with an African-American fan base that lead to him winning the Funniest Black Comedian in San Diego contest. So Owen, starring in "Think Like a Man" based on the book by Steve Harvey, should fit right in with the African-American cast. Why go: Owen's comedy is colorless. Reconsider: Black church-white church jokes might start to get old. Details: 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at UP Comedy Club, Piper's Alley, 230 W. North Ave.; $20; 312-662-4562, upcomedyclub.com
