Of all the jokes comics have made about air travel since the days of the Wright Brothers, Last Comic Standing 2014 winner Rod Man might be the only stand-up who thinks to warn the audience about the dangers of wearing holey socks through airport security. “I got a bad big toe, I know that about myself,” he admits on “Airport Socks and Lotion” before imagining “skeeting” lotion in the pilot’s eye and threatening to fight a racist infant (“Hey Little White Baby”). Rod Man’s material — whether he’s talking about the confusion caused by direct deposit and debit cards or getting pulled over for driving in the carpool lane without another occupant (“that’s a thesaurus word right there”) — draws from everyday life. But his laidback drawling, Atlanta-honed delivery and his offbeat approach give a curveball spin to common premises, creating relatable material that keeps audiences, from BET’s ComicView to Judd Apatow’s Funny People, hanging on his every word. $22.50, 8pm Thu, 9:15pm Fri-Sat, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, lolsanantonio.com. — Jeremy Martin
