‘Hazzard’ warning

Just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm, actor Tom Wopat crashes the UCO Jazz Lab.

Fresh from his “hey, isn’t that Tom Wopat?” appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, actor Tom Wopat will perform two concerts Saturday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond.

Although he’s promoting his brand-new CD, I’ve Got Your Number, and is a two-time Tony nominee for his Broadway pursuits, Wopat is perhaps best-known for playing Luke Duke on the early ’80s TV hit The Dukes of Hazzard.

But don’t just take my word for it.

“Audiences will definitely remember Tom Wopat as one of the rowdy Dukes of Hazzard boys, but he is so much more than that,” said Greg White, director and producer of UCO’s Broadway Tonight series.

The shows are scheduled for 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40. For more information, call 974-3375 or visit uco.edu/cfad/events. —Rod Lott

Women Who Kill

More like maim.


Comedy

Rod Lott
An hour of stage comedy by female stand-ups, Women Who Kill errs in putting its not-so-secret weapon right upfront: Amy Schumer, who might just be the funniest person in America right now. Even her throwaway lines (“Do you ever have Oxycontin mouth?” she asks no one, rhetorically) pierce the flesh.
