Looking for name of stand-up comedian who used simple signs from early ‘90s

Might anyone know the name of a stand-up comedian from the late eighties/early nineties?

One of his routines was to have a bunch of signs with words such as “this”, “that”, “there” and others.

The bit consisted of verbal/visual puns such as saying, “Put ‘this‘ over ‘there‘,” as he would physically hold the “there” sign under the “this” sign.

thanks, Todd’s forgetful keyboard

Found him. Heywood Banks.

Now trying to find a good version of his routine. My memory is that it will be a good example of various prepositions for an ESL (English as a Second Language) class.

Don't forget Big Butter Jesus.

He is on the Bob & Tom show quite a bit.
