Jack White has a record label, Third Man Records. As one would expect, his roster comprises primarily bands and solo musicians. So when Mr. White signs a comedian, it probably means that the esteemed rocker is a huge fan. And, if you've seen the way White dresses, you know he has a good -- albeit macabre -- sense of humor.
Anyway, comedian Rory Scovel can't be held responsible for the pallid wardrobe choices that his boss makes, but he can be quite funny. Having recently landed a role on the TBS show Ground Floor, the South Carolina native's stock has been steadily rising, and rightly so. His pot-tinged social commentary and his ability to deliver the goods without relying too heavily on comedic banalities make for an act that's at once honest and hilarious.
Scovel visits Stand Up Live, 50 West Jefferson Street, at 7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday, June 27. The 21-and-over show is $17. Visit www.standuplive.com or call 480-719-6100 for details.
