Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Comedian, actor and writer DC Benny was not a writer for The Dennis Miller Show. “I wrote a spec script for The Dennis Miller Show,” he says. “Somehow on the internet it comes up as I wrote for them.” But a job he did have sounds like an internet error: Benny played Chaz Dargote on the soap opera As The World Turns. “There was a main character named Dusty and I was his bodyguard and a little bit of comedy relief,” he says. “When I was doing gigs, a bunch of old ladies would come out to the club that normally wouldn’t have. It was fun. Soap operas are a great gig.”


Thursday-Sunday. $15-$17. Funny Bone on the Levee, Newport, Ky., levee.funnybone.com
