Originally from the Sunshine State, TOM RHODES spent years as the David Letterman of Amsterdam before returning stateside to resume his stand-up career. Rhodes comes from the school of observational comedy and isn't afraid to talk about politics. His well-known Comedy Central performance "Viva Vietnam" paid homage to troops. He's a thinking man's comic, so expect humor that makes you reflect as much as it makes you laugh. He continues a four-night run at the Punchline Sat., JAN. 26. Through Jan. 27. $18-$22. Thurs., 8 p.m.; Fri., 8 and 10 p.m.; Sat., 7, 9 and 11 p.m.; Sun., 8 p.m. 280 Hilderbrand Drive. 404-252-5233. www.punchline.com.
