Few comedians who perform at the Improv in Irvine can resist taking at least one shot at the just-so neat and orderly planned community. But Jim Hope is one up on his fellow comics: He actually lives in Irvine, and that gives him some special insight into the yuppie enclave: "I saw some graffiti on a wall in Irvine. Well, it was typed, but still. . . " Of course, Irvine isn't the only place in O.C. that Hope can find to laugh about. How 'bout the time he went to Disneyland?

Just when it appeared the Indy Racing League was coming up short in the way of interesting new names for the Indianapolis 500, along comes Jim Guthrie to breathe some life into a lackluster entry list. Who is this 35-year-old body-shop owner from Albuquerque who literally stole last week's Phoenix 200 from Tony Stewart, the pride of the IRL and the No. 1 driver for the richest team in the series?

Jim Hope shares a key trait with many of stand-up's new generation: He didn't grow up with a burning desire to be a comic. "I never thought I'd be a comedian," the 25-year-old says. "I thought I was going to be a college professor." But two things happened--both, ironically, in a college setting--that changed his outlook. When he was a sophomore at UC Irvine, he caught an on-campus performance by Bob Saget, a veteran comedian who now stars in the hit ABC sitcom "Full House."

When artist Jim Branscum interviews a potential model, he's looking for more than just a pretty face. Branscum has begun a series of pencil drawings of what he calls "the pioneers of this country" to help Americans recognize the contributions of the elderly. After crisscrossing the nation, visiting 33 states and interviewing 100 people for "Aging in America: Our Heritage of Wisdom," Branscum has chosen 22 models. Most are over 85 and live in long-term-care nursing homes. "Older people in long-term care are simply dismissed.

It's very commendable, this wish of Mark Jerue's to become himself. But fat chance that it will come true any time soon. Jerue is a starting inside linebacker for the Rams. That's Mark Jerue. Make note of that. Not Mike Jerue and certainly not, "The guy who's filling in for Jim Collins." Unfortunately, it's the latter description that has stuck. Seems no matter how well he performs--and he has performed well--Jerue's name is chain-linked to the player he's replacing.

Brothel owner Bobbi Davis got the go-ahead Tuesday to hire what her website cheekily calls "a few good men." Her Shady Lady Ranch is searching for "service-oriented" guys willing to become Nevada's first legal male sex workers. "I personally feel, as do the many other women who have made contact with me since I started this, that this is a service whose time has come," Davis said in a letter to Nye County officials. A county board's vote Tuesday affirming that Davis could offer "shady men" to her clientele followed months of rancorous debate among the state's legal brothel community.

Comedian Bob Hope underwent surgery Monday for a benign condition of the prostate gland, a spokesman said. Doctors at USC's Kenneth Norris Jr. Hospital in Los Angeles who performed the procedure, similar to an operation undergone last year by President Reagan, found no sign of cancer, according to the comedian's spokesman, Jim Mahoney. Hope, 84, who entered the hospital Sunday, will probably return to his Toluca Lake home in three days, Mahoney said.
