COMEDY | Barry Crimmins 

Comedian Barry Crimmins helped jumpstart the Boston standup scene in the 80's after he founded the comedy clubs The Ding Ho and Stitches, which gave Steven Wright, Paula Poundstone, Bobcat Goldthwait, Denis Leary, and so many other comedians their start. A truth-teller and political satirist — he has a book out called "Never Shake Hands with a War Criminal" — Crimmins has always had a focus on social change, and in the 90's became a fighter against Internet child pornography after realizing that he was a victim of sexual abuse as a young child. Recently, Crimmins was the subject of the documentary "Call Me Lucky," directed by Goldthwait. The film profiles Crimmins, his legendary career, and his activism.

Barry Crimmins will perform Saturday, January 2, at The Comedy Club, 2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster. 7:30 p.m., $20; and 10 p.m., $17. thecomedyclub.us; barrycrimmins.com.
