There aren’t many standup comics we’d want to see in a bikini, even for comedic purposes. Yet April Macie doesn’t mind posing for swimsuit pictures (or telling raunchy sexy jokes), and we don’t mind looking at them. The red-headed native of Easton, Pa. takes the stage at Hyena’s in Fort Worth this weekend. Her performances run Fri-Sat at 605 Houston St, FW. Admission is $10-15 plus two purchases. Call 817-877-5233.
