Jon Lovitz, underappreciated star of 'SNL' and 'The Critic', camps out at the Improv all weekend


  • Phil Konstantin
Best known for his performances as part of Saturday Night Live’s more memorable casts, where he coined the phrase “that’s the ticket,” or as Emperor Todd Spengo in the less-memorable cult classic Mom and Dad Save the World, Jon Lovitz graces the stage of the Orlando Improv for a special engagement Friday through Sunday. Lovers of old-school deadpan comedy from the likes of Norm MacDonald, Kevin Nealon and Dennis Miller should brave the touristy part of town for a night of cheeky humor by this living legend of unremarkable movies. Get in the mood for a good laugh by downloading one of “The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club & Podcast Theatre” recordings or streaming The Ridiculous 6, now on Netflix. 

6:30 p.m. Friday, 6 and 9:45 p.m. Saturday, 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 8-10 | Orlando Improv, 9101 International Drive | 407-480-5233 | | $30
