In a sea of observational and storytelling humor, Robert Hawkins continues to stand out as one of America’s foremost joke writers.

Though few do it as well, he doesn’t think there’s necessarily a shortage of folks with that talent. “I don't think there is, or ever will be, a shortage of good joke writers,” he says.  Speaking of writing, Hawkins was formerly the story editor on the sitcom Titus on Fox. While he enjoys the freedom of stand-up, he sometimes misses the old Titus gang. “It was stressful,” he says, “but we laughed all day, every day we were working.  And we made a lot of $krill doing that.” Robert Hawkins performs at Go Bananas in Montgomery Feb. 23 through Feb. 26, Thursday through Sunday. Showtime is 8 p.m., with a 10:30 p.m. showing on Friday and Saturday. $8-$14. $4 Thursday, with college or military ID. 513-984-9288.  gobananascomedy.com.
