Brash, bold and, of course, hilarious, Lisa Landry returns to town this weekend. Her acclaimed DVD Brazillionaire came out last year and has helped gain her an even bigger following. That’s good, as this is the only job that has ever worked out for her. “I kept getting fired off every job I ever had,” she says of her decision to start doing stand-up. “I had to turn this smart mouth into something that would get me ahead, and get me off of unemployment.” Even job interviews were difficult for Landry. “They ask you ridiculous stuff when you’re looking for work,” she says. “Like when they ask, ‘Can you tell us about yourself?’ ” This one always stumped Landry. “How far back do I go? I was a difficult birth. I was a rebellious teenager, but I worked out my issues with my parole officer. I went to the University of New Orleans, so I can’t speed read, but I can swim.” And even if she did get the job, it wouldn’t last long. “I have no filter. And it’s gotten worse as I’ve gotten older. It would be a blessing to know when to keep my mouth shut. Sometimes.” $8-$14. Through Sunday, Dec. 16. Go Bananas, Montgomery. 513-984-9288, gobananascomedy.com.
