Comedian Ian Morrison, who you just might also know as drag queen Brittany Lynn, joins The Vicious Variety Show. The LOL-worthy evening comprises a host of local comedians, like 2014 Philly's Phunniest winner Matt McCusker, the frighteningly funny Necrosexual, and standup comics N.A. Poe, David Piccolomini and Rick Robotin performing in drag, with, I'm guessing a few pointers from Brittany under their garter belts. Wednesday, October 29th, 8 p.m., $8, Trestle Inn, 339 North 11th Street.
This has can't-miss written all over it: Cory Wade as Freddy Krueger, Mistor Fahrenheit, Lili St. Queer and Pissi Miles as the the trio of witches in Hocus Pocus? Yes, please! Ukulele master/Ghostbuster Eric Jaffe will host the variety show, which promises all that, and an evening of music, more drag, a costume contest and spooks out the yang. A perfect pre-Halloween shebang. Thursday, October 30th, 9 p.m., free, Tavern On Camac, 243 South Camac Street.
