God Bless the booty call. Who first gave America this phrase designated for late-night telephone invitations to no-strings-attached sex? Comedian and former MTV Jamz host Bill Bellamy.
The Rutgers grad’s philosophical waxings about the booty call on Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam made Bellamy a star. After that, he appeared in Oliver Stone’s Any Given Sunday and taught us How to Be a Player.
These days, Bellamy is the host of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and booty calls are usually made via text message. You can’t fight progress. But you can see Bellamy tonight through Sunday at Improv at the Majestic (7430 Northwest 87th Street). Call 816-587-4500 for showtimes and reservations.
