Preview: Robert Hines/Lakeshore Theater | Newcity Stage
RECOMMENDED You probably have never heard of South Side comedian Robert Hines, but perhaps you're one of the 800,000 views to his alter-ego's You Tube video, "Jones Big Ass Truck Rental and Storage," the newest internet meme created by Hines and local sketch group Big Dog Eat Child. Local entrepreneur Toby Jones will store anything – rusty bicycles, antique silverware, buses, weed, you name it—in an abandoned warehouse for the low, low price of $10.99 a month! "Now friends, you may ask yourself, 'how in the hell can he store this stuff for such a cheap price?'" Toby asks. "The fact of the matter is I'm pretty drunk right now." While Jones may be one of the year's best internet characters, it's thankfully not the only part of Hines' act. Potential targets of Hines' chuckle-worthy observational humor: Flying as an overweight individual, the way African-Americans spruce up the National Anthem, and, best of all, his love of "boobies." December 31 at Lakeshore Theater, 3175 N. Broadway,
