Arsenio Hall is one of those rare comics so popular, he comes with his own chant. In fact, not so long ago, you could mention "Arsenio" and everyone in the room would start whooping like audience members sitting in the "dog pound" section on "The Arsenio Hall Show". It's still easy to get excited by Hall, who in addition to making history as the first black late-night talk show host, starred in movies with Eddie Murphy ("Coming to America"), appeared on "Chappelle's Show" and even won "Celebrity Apprentice". But of all the venues for his amazing talent -- from screens big to small -- he is best live and up close on the stand-up stage. His energy, his charisma, and his effortless (and seemingly boundless) humor will be on display when this comedy legend headlines the San Jose Improv. [less-]

A pair of feuding perfume shop employees don't realize that they're secretly and anonymously writing love letters to each other in the sentimental musical comedy "She Loves Me".
