Fundamentals of funny

Live comedy’s a tough occupation, and can be even tougher if your aim is keeping it clean. Rising to the occasion is Akintunde, whose goal to revolutionize the Christian entertainment industry results in a stand-up routine carefully balanced between edgy and family-friendly. The veteran writer, actor, producer, and stand-up comedian draws from his experience writing for TV on programs like “It’s Showtime at the Apollo,” and “The Monique Show,” and is currently promoting the release of a new DVD.

Saturday 1/26 $10-15, 7:30pm. V. Earl Dickinson Main Stage, PVCC Campus, 501 College Dr. 961-5376.
