Bobcat Goldthwait 

When: Aug. 9-11, 7:30 p.m. 2013
When Bobcat Goldthwait began his comedy career during the height of the late-’80s stand-up boom, it was easy to dismiss him as a weirdo fringe act. In those early days, Goldthwait’s style was part Sam Kinison, part escaped mental patient — shrieking one-liners into the microphone like an unhinged maniac with what he’d later describe as his “Cookie Monster voice.” These days, after retiring from comedy, pursuing indie film work as both an actor and a director and finally unretiring from comedy, Goldthwait no longer leans on the voice to get his jokes across. Instead, his comedy is incredibly smart and surprisingly dark. Which isn’t to say it won’t get weird — this is a man who made a movie about an alcoholic clown framed for murder, after all — but Goldthwait’s performances have only gotten sharper as days have gone on.
