Fred Armisen

Fred Armisen, who does Prince better than Prince, started out as a musician before he turned to comedy. He was even married to Sally Timms of the Mekons (!). He brings his Jens Hannemann character from his DVD titled Jens Hannemann: Complicated Drumming Technique to the Troubadour, where, it's safe to say, he can rock out freely. Sample song title: "Polynesian Nightmare Breakdown." Mr. Armisen describes the evening thusly: "An evening of drums, discussion, and discussion of drums. I'm also going to do former dictator of Iraq Saddam Hussein, political comedian Nicholas Fehn and a few others. Thanks!" Mon., Jan. 28, 9 p.m., 2008
