There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
What has Amsterdam done to Tom Rhodes? You may remember the hippied-out, longhaired comedian from his Comedy Central appearances in the early ’90s; you probably don’t remember him from his brief and forgettable NBC sitcom, Mr. Rhodes. Either way, you wouldn’t recognize him now: Bucking all stoners-in-Amsterdam clichés, Rhodes went to the Netherlands looking like a bohemian and has come back to America resembling a clean-cut banker. The wild mane may be gone, but Rhodes does bring with him a considerably longer résumé: He first hosted a Dutch network’s American-style late-night show and, later, the network’s travel show. His next destination, however, is a more familiar one: the stand-up stage, where Rhodes seems most at home. Rhodes performs at 8:30 p.m. at the D.C. Improv, 1140 Connecticut Ave. NW. $15. (202) 296-7008; see City List for a complete schedule.
