But having two headliners instead of just one worked well Tuesday night at the Improv in Pacific Beach. Los Angeles-based friends Rick Corso, who won the 1989 San Diego Laff-Off contest, and Jerry Miner, who won the 1990 version, were paired for the evening.

Late in a first-round game of the Southern Section water polo playoffs, Coach Rich Corso of North Hollywood's Harvard-Westlake High put in his fourth group of dry players. Harvard-Westlake was leading Tustin, 13-5, after three quarters and it seemed like a good time. Especially when you have 68 eyes looking at you for a little more playing time.

Have you ever noticed how Italian-American men love to tip? Comedian Rick Corso, a bona fide Sinatra-loving Italian from New Jersey, has.

Rob Becker thinks too many of his fellow comedians are getting cheap laughs at the expense of men. "I'm one of the few comics around who doesn't come out and say, 'Men are pigs,' " says Becker, who comes to the Irvine Improv Tuesday, Sept. 4. "I don't think men are pigs. I think women just misinterpret their actions." Pointing out the differences between the sexes has become the bedrock of Becker's act. "I used to think men and women were just alike," Becker says.

The Harvard Water Polo Foundation senior team returned from Florida with its third national title in a little more than a year after winning the indoor championship in Fort Lauderdale last weekend. Harvard defeated the Sunset club of San Diego, 16-6, in the final of the 12-team tournament at the Swimming Hall of Fame pool. Harvard, which also won the national indoor tournament last year and the outdoor tournament two months ago, swept six matches in Florida and outscored the opposition, 113-38.

Anita Wise showed up early, as did Mike Rapaport and Marvin Bell, who sat peering in baleful silence at a baseball game flickering inaudibly on Wilks' TV set.

Well-poured martinis sparkle under soft lights. Lazy smoke and happy chatter drift through the room. Onstage, sharp cats in swanky matching tuxes are cooking up some way-out sounds, daring the collected revelers to follow the music's nutty lead. Young swingers fill the dance floor, hungry for more of that cool, crazy beat. No, it's not visions of some long-forgotten shindig at Hef's place.
