Those who know Jim Breuer from his role as a THC-addled petty criminal in the stoner comedy classic Half Baked or as Goat Boy from his four seasons on Saturday Night Live might be surprised to learn that the role he plays most often in his stand-up is Dad. The rubber-faced comedian is more likely to split your sides with stories about marriage and parenting than with weed humor nowadays, but don’t think that means dad jokes. His trademark physicality and knack for voice work elevate anecdotes about domesticity to something a little more subversive.
