Call all ho-ho-hos! Todd Komarnicki, producer and screenwriter best known for instant Will Ferrell classic Elf, reads at the Half King, writer Sebastian Junger’s watering hole for vaguely hot book editors who are several years out of Harvard and prematurely line their pockets with Cialis to be sure they don’t blink when face to face with dewy 24-year-old publishing house assistants who blog about female-empowering porn.

[Todd Komarnicki at the Half King, 505 West 23rd Street, 7 p.m., 212-462-4300]
