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 | theimprovorlando.com | $30
