“People think the Earth is flat again,” Chris Porter begins one bit, before quickly losing his patience. “Have you ever seen a lunar eclipse? Has it ever just been a line across the moon?” This weekend, the Kansas-born comedian, best known as a finalist on season 4 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, comes to the Improv for five shows. Since his stint on NBC, he’s appeared on Comedy Central Presents and released two specials on Amazon—Ugly and Angry and Man From Kansas—and has toured the country’s comedy club circuit. Now’s the chance to see what Porter’s been cooking up during the pandemic.
