You’ve probably seen his face while he’s been trying to sell you a Honda on TV, but despite that, Nick Thune is actually funny. The Washington State-born comedian combines rapid-fire witticisms and absurd scenarios with melodic guitar accompaniment in his Netflix special, Folk Hero, but his brand of comedy is much closer to Mitch Hedberg’s than Stephen Lynch’s. Thune is coming down for a quick tour of Florida fresh off of winning an episode of Comedy Central’s @midnight and before joining Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy Tour for its final dates in Texas. Joining him for this date are Central Florida ex-pat Greg Barris and Will’s Pub’s funniest door guy, Larry Fulford. This is Fulford’s last local show until the Orlando Indie Comedy Fest hits town Oct. 1-4. (You can find out more about the festival here.)

8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21 | Backbooth, 37 W. Pine St. | 407-999-2570 | backbooth.com | $14-$16
