Comedy in a Box wraps with Chris Alpine

The Washington Center for the Performing Arts wraps up its season of comedy cabarets on Thursday, June 16. The headliner: Chris Alpine.

Alpine won the Seattle International Comedy Competition in 1986 and has performed not only on HBO, A&E, Showtime and Comedy Central but on USO tours of Iraq.

I'm going to guess it's that latter gig that has shaped his humor, which often focuses on the differences between the sexes.

To wit, a sample from a YouTube video posted last year:

"I only have one thing to say about women drivers: Women drivers are actually better drivers than men," Alpine says. "It's true. Women are better drivers than men because women can put on makeup at 60 miles an hour. ...

"And why do women have to have their mouth open to put on eye makeup in the first place? Where's the connection here? Do you have an extra tendon in your face that men just don't know about?"
