“I’m a little anti-establishment,” says comedian Kevin Brennan. “Anyone who says this is what you should behave like — that’s a crock of shit. I think I get that from my dad’s side of the family.” It’s only during the past few years, though, that Brennan has looked to politics and current events for some of his jokes. “Ten years ago I thought I looked too young to have any kind of opinion. When you look young and start talking about politics, people are like ‘talk about cartoons,’ or ‘do jokes about getting drunk and getting laid.’ Now I think I look old enough to joke about politics.” Still, he’d rather just talk about people in general, or about marrying a Latina. “If I was going to have a sitcom, I would be an Archie Bunker-type, only married to a Latina.” Go Bananas Comedy Club, Montgomery. Through Sunday Aug. 19. 8 p.m. Additional 10:30 p.m. showings Friday and Saturday. $8-$14. 513-984-9288, gobananascomedy.com.
