Comedian and actor Paul Reiser could either love that people still walk up to him and say, "Hey, Paul Buchman!" or hate that he is still only remembered for the character he played on the '90s award-winning sitcom "Mad About You." Ah, the spoils of success. Well, for those who've forgotten Reiser's comedic beginnings, his return to the stand-up stage this weekend at Zanies in Rosemont can serve as a reminder.
Why go: Besides acting and comedy, some of Reiser's other accomplishments you may not know about are his many music projects and the books he has written.
Reconsider: You are not sure if the failed "The Paul Reiser Show" was a subject-matter issue or a network poor-scheduling issue.
7 p.m. Saturday at Zanies Rosemont, MB Financial Park, 5437 Park Place, Rosemont; $25, two-item minimum; 847-813-0484, zanies.com
