The Game Show Show . . . and Stuff! 

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 31 2011
Price: $15
Smart smarm is hard to find, but there's plenty of it in this effervescent, if sometimes shaggy, audience-participation crassfest. Games run from tests of knowledge (the "Annie Get Your Green Card" category asks basic questions about American government) to double-dog-dare-you challenges (eating through globs of questionable Jello to retrieve objects). High-spirited Anderson Lawfer and his sidekick, James Anthony Zoccoli (or "Jaz,"), share the stage with a tight band, backup singers, and a changing lineup of performance "stuff." Yes, they give out real prizes, and even raise a bit of coin for charities along the way. —Kerry Reid
