If you were to do a poll asking people if they enjoyed Howard Stern and his radio show, chances are you’d get the same kind of skewed results that polls asking whether a voter would vote for a black man end up with. Closet Stern fans probably number in the hundreds of thousands (if not millions). Others are turned off by Stern’s blunt humor, perceived bigotry and misogyny and the naked women that E! made the central focus of their old TV version of Stern’s show (something that only encouraged people to write Stern off even further).

Stern’s staff, team of writers and cavalcade of “whack packers” have all assisted in making Stern’s radio program on satellite even better than it was on old-fashioned radio. Saturday, you’ll get to see some of those assistants at work, as the “Killers of Comedy” show comes to Annie’s. The event includes appearances by Stern co-horts and co-workers Rev. Bob Levy, Shuli, Yucko the Clown, Sal Governale and the legendary Beetlejuice (local comedian Brad Thacker will also be appearing). Like the Stern show itself, the Killers of Comedy performance should be a mix of deliciously tasteless stand-up comedy and a parade of freaks and geeks. $25; $40 VIP.
