March 26, 2018 GMT

Comedy fans probably know his name — and face — from all the movies and stand-up shows he has done.

Harland Williams’ credits include, among others, “Dumb and Dumber,” “Something about Mary,” “Half Baked,” “Rocketman,” “Sorority Boys” and “Down Periscope.”

Williams, who is known for his joke-telling and improvisational skills, comes to Comix at Mohegan Sun for four shows Thursday, April 5, through Saturday, April 7.

According to the Comix website, Williams “has been described as a scene-stealing actor whose unique portrayals of his characters keep them etched in the minds of filmgoers everywhere. Add to this his incredible stand up comedy routines,” which have been seen on “Letterman,” “The Tonight Show,” “Conan O’Brian,” HBO and “Comedy Central.”

Comix added: “His improvisational skills led to him winning the award for best improviser on NBC’s prime time series, ‘Thank God You Are Here’ (available on YouTube). Harland Williams is the rare comic artist who has managed to master both stand-up and sketch comedy and combine them both masterfully into his shows, (which) are fresh, funny and always full of the unexpected.”
