Just two more days of eating cheese out of your parents’ fridge and arguing with your sister until you can—phew—go back to the office! Until then, how about some comedy to pass the time. (It’s pretty much that or Reese Witherspoon vehicle Four Christmases!) Letterman writer and Emmy winner Ted Greenberg stages The Complete Performer at the Huron Club, billing it as “A One-Man Comedy Show With Balls” (hot!) and even offering to give audience members a ride home afterward. (Maybe this would solve Broadway’s woes.…) Later, catch famed Observer cover caricaturist Philip Burke’s exhibit, Face Nation, at Symbolic Gallery (we’re saving up for a bust of Obama for our sitting room).

[Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer, Soho Playhouse, 15 Vandam Street, 10:30 p.m., 212-691-1555; Philip Burke at Symbolic Gallery, the Fuller Building, fifth Floor, 595 Madison Avenue, 702-507-5263] Saturday, November 29
