So, it's come to this. Jim Belushi, listed among those of the prominent coming attractions. Well, okay. There are surely worse Best Bets to bet on. And you have to admit, the dude did manage to have a top-rated sitcom that ran successfully for twice as long as, say, "Arrested Development" has, so he must be doing something right. Now that "According to Jim" has been put out to stud (yeesh, what a visual), the little brother of that other Belushi comic you might have heard of is back onstage in a big way, doing what he presumably does best – Second City-style improv. Accompanied by the Chicago Board of Comedy, a renowned improv outfit from America's comedy capital, Belushi and company are intent on entertaining the masses for the new millennium, toga-themed chants be damned. Somewhere in the sweet hereafter, John is probably beaming with pride ... and then probably starting a food fight with Jesus and Gilda Radner.
