If you’ve ever used the phrase “booty call,” you owe Bill Bellamy a dollar. The comedian coined the phrase while performing on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, finally giving late-night copulators all over the world a way to refer to that 2 a.m. text. In fact, you’ve probably said it a lot – why not just fork over another $21 and catch Bellamy at the Tempe Improv July 24? The comedian, now 49, hasn’t missed a step since that momentous day, appearing in several movies and TV shows, evening out the demographics on MTV as one of the network’s VJs, and producing three Showtime stand-up specials. Plus, he’s Shaquille O’Neal’s cousin. Just wanted to throw that out there.
Bellamy stands up at 8 p.m. Thursday, July 24, at Tempe Improv, 930 East University Drive. Tickets are $22. Call 480-921-9877 or visit www.tempeimprov.com for more.
Thu., July 24, 8 p.m.; Fri., July 25, 7:30 & 10:15 p.m.; Sat., July 26, 7 & 10:15 p.m.; Sun., July 27, 7 p.m., 2014
