While many comedians start doing stand-up and then move to television, Jon Dore studied broadcasting in his hometown in Canada and then took to the stage. Dore took some acting roles and wound up as a correspondent for Canadian Idol. American TV audiences may recognize him from an appearance on Conan O’Brien in which Dore and friend Rory Scovel hilariously performed stand-up at the same time. Jon Dore performs at Go Bananas in Montgomery Thursday-Sunday. Showtime is 8 p.m. with a 10:30 p.m. showing Friday and Saturday. $8-$14. gobananascomedy.com. 513-984-9288.
