The Second City alum holds forth on his addiction to sugar in a standup run at Steppenwolf. Talk about rush seats.
7/13–24 Jeff Garlin of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm offers the standup kind of comedy, as opposed to the three-act Neil Simon kind, but a lack of narrative arc doesn’t make the material any less hilarious. Here Garlin explores his addiction to sugar—not unlike a heroin habit, as he points out. Anyone who has ever had an insatiable desire for butter-cream frosting will feel sympathy—and a craving for dessert. $25. Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N Halsted. steppenwolf.org.
