    Pat Dean

    Yes, this is the same feller who runs the Velveeta Room. And yes, he's funny as hell, tell you what. Going to see Pat Dean at Cap City tonight isn't so much "supporting the hometown scene" as it is "doing yourself a big comedy favor." And don't you, citizen? Don't you really deserve a comedy favor right about now?
