Comedian Greg Behrendt continues to crush it.

He will perform at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. May 11-12 at Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland.

In 2009, “He’s Just Not That Into,” the movie based on his bestselling book, opened in theaters nationwide and was America’s number one movie. Behrendt’s second comedy special, “That Guy from That Thing,” was released by Image Entertainment after premiering on Comedy Central. He hit the road with the “Greg Behrendt’s Totally Into You Comedy Tour” and made his Edinburgh Festival debut at The Assembly Rooms.

In 2010, Behrendt wrote a half-hour sitcom pilot for CBS, produced and starred in “There Might Be Cake,” an unscripted pilot for IFC, and performed stand-up at both the Melbourne and Montreal International Comedy Festivals, and worked as a Consulting Producer on NBC’s Love Bites.

Behrendt launched the podcast “Walking the Room” in 2011 and its standup spin-off, “Starfish Circus,” both of which he hosts with Dave Anthony; he also headlined an episode of John Oliver’s New York Standup Show on Comedy Central, performed stand-up at Nando’s Cape Town Comedy Festival in South Africa.

Already in 2012, Behrendt is scheduled to perform stand-up at both the Melbourne and New Zealand International Comedy Festivals. Behrendt is also currently writing a comedy pilot for AMC with Hank Azaria and Jerry Stahl, and a movie version of his book “It’s Called a Break-Up Because It’s Broken” entitled “Breakup Buddies.”
