Collin Moulton's enthusiasm is infectious. "I have no shortage of passions," says the Los Angeles-based comedian. "I'm doing 10 or 12 things at once and I want everyone to do it with me. I just love doing stuff, working out and eating well and checking out motorcycles, and I want to bring everyone along." That intense drive for adventure is what powers Moulton's standup act, both fueling his energetic stage presence and providing fodder for new material. "I get excited about something and then put myself in a weird situation, and that's where a lot of my jokes come from. I get so excited that I overlook things." Moulton himself, however, is difficult to overlook. He recently debuted his first half-hour special on Showtime and released a new CD, Chicken Stupid, and later this year he'll make his second appearance at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. In the meantime, he's keeping himself busy writing and pitching TV shows in between long stints of working on the road. "I'm creating in every direction I can." $15. 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. 801 Sibley Memorial Hwy., West St. Paul; 651.330.9078. Through Saturday
