Jodi Borrello and Friends at Harrah's New Orleans 

click to enlarge stage_rev2-1.jpg

New Orleans is full of colorful characters, and comedian Jodi Borrello has some news about how you fit in: "If you haven't got a crazy neighbor, you know what that means, right? It's you."

  There will be plenty of local color and characters when Borrello is joined by Amanda Hebert and Becky Allen, performing together as the Three Charmers. The Charmers each represent a part of the city: Borrello is from eastern New Orleans, Hebert is from Algiers, and Allen is from the French Quarter. The showcase also features music by Benny Grunch & the Bunch.

  Borrello finds inspiration very close to home, drawing on her family, New Orleans' personalites and especially the city's character and flaws. She says comedy is all about finding the similarities in life, and she's found broad appeal, performing frequently in Las Vegas and at Budd Friedman's The Improv, opening for Dennis Miller and appearing on CNN's Showbiz Tonight. Tickets $35. — Lora Ghawaly
