- Stewart Huff is this week's top pick, performing at the Comedy Attic in Bloomington
I saw Stewart Huff at Bear's Place in Bloomington about three years ago, and like "the one that got away," I fell in love, but haven't seen him since. He was so good that I still vividly remember specific jokes and mannerisms from his set. That may not seem particularly impressive to you, but I had a "Hairy Bear" that night during the show, so the fact that I even remember where I was is a miracle.
For those of you who have never been to Bear's Place, or— even more shamefully— graduated from IU without ever taking one on— a Hairy Bear is a massive 32 oz. citrus drink with eight shots of alcohol. It tastes like someone marinated a grapefruit in shitty vodka for about nine hours.
Huff has an easy-going Southern sense of humor, but don't lump him in with those "Blue Collar" idiots just because of his accent. While he's not going to knock you out of your seat with mind-blowing world views, he is hilariously perceptive, and he's nearly impossible not to like.
