After performing all over town this summer, the folks at Ohio Burlesque are back at Beachland Ballroom for a special show tonight featuring both classic and neo-burlesque dancers. Dangrrr Doll, a dancer out of New York, holds a title for “most humorous act,” so don’t expect her to take herself too seriously when she performs tonight. The slew of special guests slated to perform include dancers from both far (New Mexico) and near (Columbus). A press release boasts there will be “aerials, belly dance, hula hoop and drag.” In other words, there’s something for everyone (assuming that person is over the age of 18). The show starts at 9 and tickets are $15 in advance and $17 at the door. (Niesel)

Award-winning comedian, author, and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia returns to the stage with more painfully awkward stories in a show about jokes, and how they can get you in trouble. Join Birbiglia as he he gets arrested in New Jersey, screamed at by a famous director, heckled by Statler and Waldorf, and attacked by zombie rodents. Ira Glass of public radio's This American Life writes "Birbiglia's stories are even funnier live than they are on the radio." Time Magazine calls Birbiglia "master of the personal, embarrassing tale." The New York Times describes him as a "supremely enjoyable monologist." It all goes down tonight at Conner Palace at Playhouse Square. $46.50

Now in its 25th year, the Chalk Festival at the Cleveland Museum of Art celebrates the last days of summer with beautiful works of art drawn on the walkways of the Fine Arts Garden. Taken from an Italian Renaissance tradition —where beggars recreated the works of Raphael on the plazas — the event allows you to admire the chalkworks as they progress over the course of the weekend. If you have kids, check out the Second Sunday Family Day inside the museum too. It runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and noon to 5 p.m. tomorrow. Admission is free. (Trenholme)

Mutts and martinis can mix. At least that’s the concept behind the fourth annual Muttsquerade Ball, a benefit for the local organization Dogs Unlimited Rescue that takes place today from 5 to 9 p.m. at downtown’s Red the Steakhouse. This event features martini and wine bars, food, live music and a chance to help a local animal rescue. Because Dogs Unlimited Rescue is an all-volunteer organization, every dollar raised goes directly toward abused and neglected animals in dire need of human advocates and aid. Fox 8’s Stefani Schaefer will host the event. Tickets are $100 in advance, $125 at the door. (Niesel)
