Rory Scovel

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. -- Rob Kroehler

Walter Yoga

Yoga doesn't have to be the same old boring routine. You could add in some new, challenging poses or try different breathing techniques. Or you could take a Walter Yoga class and experience yoga like never before.

While every Walter Yoga class is fully-customized by the instructor with possible pulsing light shows or a state-of-the-art sound system, guest yogini Tara Martell will likely have something both fun and mind-bending planned for her June 28 session. Or she could just go the opposite route and opt for complete sensory deprivation. Half the fun of Walter Yoga is not knowing exactly what you'll experience each time.

Get some inner peace and stop in for Martell's yoga class at Walter Studios, 834 North Seventh Avenue, on Saturday, June 28. Doors open at 10 a.m., and the class runs from 10:30 a.m. until noon. All you need to do is bring your mat and $10 for the 90-minute session. -- Heather Hoch
