Shows Not to Miss: Tonight and Saturday

1. The Rejection Show's special "Chicks and Giggles" edition, featuring New Yorker cartoonist and Friend o' Emdashes Carolita Johnson, a.k.a. Newyorkette. Carolita will be debuting a riveting and hilariously groan-worthy story in words and pictures that I'm certain is headed for a thrilling future. 7:30 p.m., $8 at Mo Pitkin's; hurry before it sells out! Here's my report from a previous Rejection Show that featured cartoonists Matt Diffee, Eric Lewis, Drew Dernavich, and other funny guys.

2. A Fringe Festival play starring my delightfully talented pal Dave Greenfield, The Delicate Business of Boy and Miss Girl, written by Carly Mensch and directed by Marina McClure. Here's what it's about: "An absurd fable is corrupted by a venture capitalist masquerading as a children's party entertainer. Join adventurers Boy and Miss Girl for a weird and occasionally lethal tale of growing up and selling out." How can you lose? Playing at the Center for Architecture, and tonight it's at 8:45 p.m. Saturday at 6:30 is your last chance to catch it before it runs away, so rush!
