Dustin Diamond at Liquid Laughs

Thursday-Sunday, Feb. 6-9

by

Known for his role as "Screech" on the '90s sitcom Saved by the Bell, Dustin Diamond has transitioned to stand-up comedy and he's bringing his shtick to Boise.

Known for pissing people off (dustindiamondisadick.com is dedicated to just how much) and his homemade sex tape Screeched, Diamond's show is anything but boring. And anything but clean.

Diamond draws from various experiences, including growing up in front of America as Samuel "Screech" Powers; his turn on Celebrity Fit Club; and his memoir Behind the Bell, to deliver material that would make Beelzebub blush. Reviews from a number of his 2013 stand-up stops describe Diamond's routine as "disgusting," "blue" and "vulgar," but, as he told hpe.com, "I grew up with Eddie Murphy, George Carlin and Andrew Dice Clay, and those guys were all doing dirty material. That's what I do, too." One man's trash is another man's treasure, so if R-rated jokes tickle your funny bone, beeline for Liquid--Diamond will be there Thursday, Feb. 6-Sunday Feb. 9, with two shows a night, one show on Sunday. But don't go if you're hoping for a night of Screech one-liners. You'll be as disappointed as... well... someone who purchased Diamond's homemade sex tape
