Friday 8/31

Bust a gut

Having built a comedy career around fat jokes, Ralphie May’s Too Big to Ignore tour follows suit. Beyond his notable physique, May grabs wanted attention on the gossip wire along with his comedienne wife Lahana Turner through punchy sarcasm and eye-popping antics—from the marginally famous marijuana arrest and the release of their first “porn tape,” to the names of their children—April June May and August May. $40, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., 979-1333.
