Arie Spears 

Friday Feb. 25-Saturday Feb. 26 @ Wiseguys West Valley City

Comedian Arie Spears is one of those rare people who realized his destiny early in life. Though his style and routine have evolved over time, his talent as a performer was evident when he began his career in stand-up at the age of 14. By 16, he was already appearing on Def Comedy Jam and Showtime at the Apollo. He quickly gained recognition for his quick wit, charisma and spot-on impersonations. After moving to Los Angeles at 18, he jumped into acting jobs. His eight years as a cast member on Fox’s MadTV helped to firmly establish him in Hollywood.

Though he continues to work on various projects in front of the camera, he says that stand-up is his “bread and butter” and he tours constantly, performing at comedy clubs and theaters all over the country. Spears’ performance will have some moments when it will be a bit rough around the edges compared to Utah comics. However, those who enjoy well-crafted, professional stand-up will regret it if they miss this show.

Arie Spears @ Wiseguys Comedy Café, 2194 W. 3500 South, West Valley City, 801-463-2909, Feb. 25-26 @ 7:30 & 10 p.m., $20.
