Showgasm. (Thursday, 1/10; $5)
What is Showgasm, you ask? It's a renouncement of beige, a wet dream in a loveless marriage, the anti-brunch. Or more simply put, a raucous variety show with performances ranging from hilarious to titillating to utterly inappropriate. Come. You've never looked better!
Hosted by John Early. Featuring performances by Isaac Oliver, Tansy, Nicole Spiezio, Hamm Samwich, Guy Branum and Bridget Everett. Additional performers to be announced.
Squirm and Germ: Doppio (Friday, 1/11; $15)
Dynamic hip-hop comedy duo Squirm and Germ are turning 2! To celebrate, they're adding a double shot of talented guests to their high-energy, side-splitting show. Think The Beastie Boys meets Flight of the Conchords meets Rockapella, and get ready for a doubly unforgettable night!
