Music and laughs Saturday

Mark Eddie’s comedy rocks. With a guitar slung around his neck, the singing/strumming stand-up star riffs about music and the people who make it.

One minute Eddie is demonstrating how Al Green could make even the alphabet sexy, the next he’s explaining how heavy metal is actually “speed polka.”

Eddie will join comic Kellen Erskine (“America’s Got Talent,” Fox Sports) and host/ producer Jason Love (HBO, Comedy Central) for the next installment of Live Standup Comedy on the Hill at 8 p.m. Sat., Sept. 16 at Hillcrest Center for the Arts, 403 W. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

The 90-minute show is for ages 18 and up. Beer and wine can be purchased with valid ID.

Tickets are $12 advance, $15 at the door. Call (805) 381-1246 or visit www.hillcrestarts.com.
