COMEDY—Stand-up Anthony Jeselnik puts on a mean show. I'm not being figurative—it's literally some of the meanest, punchiest, most offensive comedy you're likely to see, and it's awesome! Maybe you're already a fan of his roast appearances or his new show The Jeselnik Offensive. I wouldn't sit too close to the stage, though. His wit cuts. CF

MICHAEL JACKSON—Or, you know, the next best thing. The Michael Jackson HIStory II show is a loving re-creation of MJ's final tour featuring 20 songs all performed by "World #1 Impersonator" Kenny Wizz. (KENNY WIZZ!!) Expect lights, choreography, spectacle, and the closest you're going to get to the person your elders refer to as the "King of Pop." WSH
