Tonight's forecast is guffaws when television weatherman Fritz Coleman takes the Ice House stage in Pasadena.
The moonlighting stand-up comic returns to his routines with Fritz and Friends, a comic threesome who will limber up the smiles before the lanky weatherman takes the spotlight.
A sampling of the Fritz wit?
* "Severe weather in California is when you can't barbecue."
* "As a weatherman in L.A., my primary function is to tell viewers if they can't go to the beach tomorrow."
* There's dew on the Porsche, get me a Valium."
Coleman's whimsical, family-style comedy earned him spots on the "Tonight Show" and a local Emmy Award for a year-end comedy review, "'86: You Had to Be There!"
