It’s already shaping up to be a big year for comedian Gabe Kea. He recently returned from Indianapolis, where he headlined a club and squeezed in a feature slot for Kevin Nealon. Back home in Cincinnati, he’s taking care of his daughter.

“She’s in preschool, so most days I take her and pick her up,” he says. “I’m a house dad. I’ll be outside playing with my daughter and one of the neighbors will come by, and then another with her kids. And then there’s me. It’s all women and then me.”

These shows at Go Bananas are going to be recorded for Kea’s first album — an exciting event made even better by the fact that he won’t be away from his daughter.

But when it’s time to hit the road again, he’ll be ready. “I try to FaceTime as much as I can when I’m on the road,” he says. “Like when I’m driving.” He laughs. “No, that’s not true.”

8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23; 7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24 and Saturday, Jan. 25; 8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26. $8-$14. Go Bananas Comedy Club, 8410 Market Place Lane, Montgomery, gobananascomedy.com.
