Little Munchkin

Presently a pusher for Pizza Hut, comedian Jim Breuer has got the munchies for fame. Working the scruffy-haired hangdog look with half-mast red eyes, it's easy to see how he was tapped by Dave Chappelle to co-star in 1998's stoner cult-classic Half-Baked.

So does Bruer really smoke weed? We don't know, but at the Tempe Improv, Breuer will be flying high off his Clear The Air Comedy Central special and his hilarious DVD The Jim Breuer Road Journals, the latter chronicling his tour of U.S. comedy clubs while pushing his 75-year old, wise-ass father in a wheelchair. SNL's Goat Boy has come a long way, baaaaay-beee.
