In 2001, Pollak decided to start doing stand-up again. “I wanted to put together a new act that featured impersonations, but I realized I had all of these firsthand stories from working with a lot of these people,” he says. “That’s what the act evolved into. Telling real life stories … while doing impressions of the people that I worked with in the past, instead of ‘what if Jack Nicholson were a bus boy, it would go something like this.’ I was never a fan of that crap.” $20-$22. Through Saturday, Sept. 22. Funny Bone on the Levee, Newport. 859-957-2000, funnyboneonthelevee.com.
