After several weeks that have made words like "white supremacist" and "Confederate legacy" a daily part of the news cycle, comedian James Davis will have more material than ever when he comes to Goodnights. The star of the Comedy Central series Hood Adjacent, Davis draws from his own experiences growing up in South Central Los Angeles—but in a relatively safe, not violence-ridden part, where he went to private school in Santa Monica. In his act and TV series, Davis draws on the morbid fascination many have with a mythologized 'hood (including actual tours people can take), exploring and ridiculing perceptions of it, of his own identity, and of human foibles that are universal no matter your socioeconomic background. —Zack Smith
