Lilith

Thu., Jan. 19, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

This exhibit was curated by Jonell Logan and named after Adam’s first wife, whom many call the first feminist. It showcases the works of local photographers Jodi Bieber, Guia Besana, Allison Janae Hamilton, Maxine Helfman and Donna Cooper Hurt, each of whom uses the camera to create new or alternative narratives regarding femininity, history, identity and power. Lilith left Adam rather than be subjugated to his will, so if you’ve got a man and he’s skeptical about this show, leave him home. Free

Hannibal Buress

Fri., Jan. 20, 8 p.m.

The last time funnyman Hannibal Buress tried to make it to Charlotte, on Sept. 25, the city was preoccupied with protesting the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. The night before, Buress brought his “Hannibal Montanabal Experience” to Raleigh, where he commented on hip-hop and jabbed at then-candidates Clinton and Trump. We’ll see what, if anything, the comic and actor says about racial division in Charlotte and the rest of the U.S.A., circa 2017. $25 and up

James Gregory

Sat., Jan. 21, 7:30 p.m.

Presented by: TPM Enterprise. James Gregory grew up watching stand-up comedy on programs like Jack Benny, Milton Berle and the Ed Sullivan Show. After some nudging from his friends, he started doing open mic stand-up in Atlanta and things just took off. Today he performs his down-home stories of food, funerals and funny relatives to sold-out theatres, casino's and corporate events working 48 weeks of the year. He’s also a regularly invited guest on national radio shows, like The Bob & Tom Show, Rick and Bubba and The Big Show with John Boy and Billy. Early in his career he earned the moniker, “Funniest Man in America,” but, he’s quick to tell you, “At that time there were only 13 states.” His jokes are squeaky clean as, he says, “My mother wouldn’t let me tell them if they weren’t.” It’s the kind of show you could feel comfortable bringing your date or your grandmother. What’s really unique about Gregory is his appeal to people of all ages, races, creeds and colors. $33-$43
