11 Super Bowl Weekend Comedy Events in Metro Phoenix

Heard any good jokes lately about New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his (allegedly) soft balls? We're guessing that you have, since many a comedian (not to mention sports wags nationwide) have gotten a lot of mileage out of the whole hullabaloo surrounding Deflategate. And such cracks and quips are probably going to keeping coming, what with Super Bowl XLIX happening Sunday, February 1, over in Glendale.

We're equally as certain that those won't be the only sort of jokes inspired by football you'll hear during the next few days, as the NFL, its many controversies this season, and such colorful stars as infinitely quotable Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman providing endless amounts of material.
