HEY SISTER, SOUL SISTER
PATTI LABELLE

HE CAN SING, TOO
REGIS PHILBIN
Now that the “hardest working man in show business” (he holds the world record for the most time spent in front of a TV camera) is through with “Live With Regis and Kelly,” he’s free to pursue one of his greatest passions: crooning in the style of Dean Martin, Perry Como and Frank Sinatra.

FUNNY LIKE A FOX
JEFF FOXWORTHY
You might be a redneck if you recognize this reference to Foxworthy’s act – or maybe you simply appreciate funny people. If he can make you laugh as host of the kids’ game show “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” imagine the extent of your howling while seeing him do stand-up.

LOL!
DAVID BRENNER
If it seems like comedian David Brenner has been doing his schtick forever, that’s because he has – but that’s a good thing! The “Tonight Show” staple (he’s the most frequent guest, with 158 appearances, many with the legendary Johnny Carson) is one of America’s comedy treasures, and you’d never guess the dude will turn 76 on Saturday. He’s also the author of five books, the latest of which is titled “I Think There’s a Terrorist In My Soup.” See, you’re already laughing.
Details: 8 p.m. Thursday at the Dave and Mary Alper JCC, 11155 SW 112th Ave., Miami; 305-271-9000; $30-$50.
