Tonight Vertigo Books in College Park has what should be a fun evening planned: Tim Reid and Tom Dreesen, the self-proclaimed first and only black and white comedy team, will discuss their new book, Tim & Tom: American Comedy in Black and White. Our sister paper the Chicago Reader has an excerpt from the book; those with shorter attention spans can check out their appearance together on Reid’s best-known gig, WKRP in Cincinnati:

Or their routine about standing on the corner of 47th and Drexel on Chicago’s South Side:
