Plenty of comics have speculated about what Obama’s pillow talk might sound like, but Jay Phillips takes the premise further by imbuing his impression with pseudo-inspirational come-ons eerily similar to the man himself’s actual State of the Union seduction lines. But Phillips—whom readers might recognize as Scootsie Double Day from Semi-Pro or Boo-Boo Buster from Baby Mama—seems less interested in making political points than in being really funny, a feat he manages to pull off while showing little, if any, of his work. Stories about runaway dogs and beat up friends get guffaws without diagrammable setups and punch lines, and Phillips delivers them with the sort of practiced professionalism that’s easy to confuse with effortlessness, more like a class clown holding court at a crowded house party than a paid laugh-extractor working a club with a two-drink minimum.

If you hit the snooze button on TV fitness guru Jillian Michaels’ “powerful” Maximize Your Life tour, fear not: The “madmen and women” of the Aesthetic of Waste also have a “life-changing” offering up their sleeves—and they probably won’t bark in your face, encourage you to shed pounds or shame you for drinking margaritas. But as the hard-to-categorize collective (Seth Larson, Abigail Entsminger, Judson Rose and Noah Voelker) has proven with productions like the award-winning We Stole This and the AtticRep collab White, anything’s possible. Billed as a “grotesque, chaotic vision of Americana and tragedy,” The Most Important Night of Theater You Will Ever Attend follows four young artists as they put a “lewd, cataclysmic” spin on the world premiere of playwright Eric Pfeffinger’s This Meeting Will Change Your Life.

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Central Library screens Rob Epstein’s 2010 film starring James Franco as gay Beat-era poet Allen Ginsberg.
Recorded live at London’s famed O2 Arena, BAFTA-winning director Hamish Hamilton’s concert film Back to Front offers fans a rare, behind-the-scenes look at Peter Gabriel in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his seminal album So.
Twenty-three years after the release of its critically and commercially acclaimed debut, and with a new album rumored to be on the way this year, seminal West Coast gangsta rap tribe Cypress Hill is swinging by Saytown just in time for Fiesta. The show, a part of the eighth annual Siesta Fest, will no doubt have a set list that reads like a greatest hits compilation, with (hopefully) a taste of what’s to come as the Chicano rap pioneers prepare to unleash their first album since 2012’s disappointing dubstep mess Cypress X Rusko. Super fan-friendly prices and a rare chance to see one of golden-era hip-hop’s most successful and influential acts? If you call yourself a hip-hop head, you’d be insane (most likely in the membrane) to miss this one.
“We Just Live in It” is the inevitable subtitle of William Shatner’s one-man show, which debuted on Broadway in 2012, and of all the solipsists to stake that claim, the one true Captain Kirk probably has the most shut-ins calling him god. If that’s you, dust off the doughnut pillow to watch and enjoy the filmed version, screened for a single night in theaters, regardless of how many times you saw it live on tour. Cheek-licking fans of Shatner’s “Rocket Man,” will hoot at the 83-year-old fitted with a flesh-tone wireless mic for the stereotypical black-box solo-show, but fans of both Shatner and good storytelling hoping for the sort of insight evident on Has Been (his pretty great collaboration with Ben Folds) might take encouragement from this: We haven’t seen Shatner’s World, but we did see Shatner last year, outside a Laurie Anderson show.
