You've probably seen Dom Irrera many times without realizing it. The Philadelphia-born stand-up comic has appeared in such films as Robert Townsend's “Hollywood Shuffle,” and he had a cameo in the “The Big Lebowski.” His many guest-star credits include “Seinfeld,” where he played a prop comic who had his nostrils done. He also appeared in “Becker,” “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “King of Queens.” His real passion is stand-up comedy, however. He's performed at comedy festivals in Montreal, Ireland, Australia and Scotland. This weekend, Pittsburgh, and more specifically, the Improv at the Waterfront in Homestead, gets his full attention. Show times are 8 and 10 p.m. Friday and 7 and 9 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $20.
