Most comedians amplify their offstage personality when they perform. Pat Dixon claims, in his case, it’s the other way around. “Oh, I’m twisted. If anything, I’m toning it down for the stage,” he says. That’s hard to imagine, considering he asks audiences a question like, “How come when you’re having sex it’s OK to say. ‘Who’s your daddy?’ but it’s not okay to say ‘I love you Mommy?’ ” Dressed in a suit and tie as he delivers such smarmy material, his professional-looking demeanor is merely a ruse. “I do wear a suit on stage,” he says. “I’m not sure how the audience takes it. I like to wear it because when you get high and wear a suit, people don’t know you’ve been getting high. They think you have a job.” $7-$12. Go Bananas Comedy Club, Montgomery.
