“They wouldn’t let me quit,” Little says. “They made me take a leave of absence. My boss said, ‘You don’t seem that funny.’ I told him, ‘Isn’t that a good thing? I’m at work taking my job seriously.’” From there, Little went to Los Angeles and wound up working on Fox Sports’ Best Damned Sports Show Period helping create sketches. It was a perfect fit. Before starting his stand-up career, Little was in the Detroit company of the Second City improv troupe. “I do a lot of improv in my show. I have a lot of jokes that lead to improv bits. It’s very natural for me and it’s just fun. And it’s fun for me, because you never know what’s going to come out of it.” $10-$15. Through Saturday, Feb. 2.
