Dave Attell

Known as the host of Comedy Central’s Insomniac with Dave Attell and The Gong Show, Dave Attell is also a great stand up comedian, writer and actor. A New York native, he graduated from NYU in 1987 with a degree in communications. During the day, he worked crappy jobs and did standup at night. After getting national exposure courtesy of David Letterman, his career took off. The caffeinated comic has a rapid fire delivery that suggests he has trouble turning his mind off. He performs tonight at 7:30 and 10 at Hilarities, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Tickets are $30 to $35. (Niesel)

Arnez J

Fri., Nov. 16

Arnez J’s little brother is mentally handicapped, and gets him into trouble. Like that time at Burger King when he just wanted to buy his little bro a burger until his brother beat up a man who wanted their handicapped spot! His humor is all over the place as he talks about the violations of colonoscopies, ladies who need to cover the glue of their weaves and the way his Uncle Charlie dances. His Rodney King skit is hilarious and his observations of the world are pretty spot-on. This one promises to be funny. He performs tonight at 7:30 and 10 at the Improv, and performances run through Sunday. Tickets start at $25. (Liz Trenholme)

Anita Baker

Fri., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

Singer songwriter Anita Baker was born in Toledo and grew up in Detroit. She began her career singing in nightclubs when she was only 16 years old. Baker found herself in a group called Chapter 8, which toured before securing their record deal. Ultimately the group was dropped when Arista bought the group's former label as they felt that the group had very little potential with Baker as the lead singer. She worked odd jobs until she was convinced to embark on a solo career. That solo career helped to shape the sound of quiet storm R&B in the '80s and includes seven platinum albums including The Songstress, Rapture and Giving You the Best That I Got. Baker has been nominated for 18 Grammy awards and has eight wins in addition to various other awards. Baker has continued to perform over the years, but as recently as January of last year had announced her retirement from recording. She's embarking on a farewell tour set to make a stop in Cleveland for two nights at the State Theatre. (Emanuel Wallace) $59.50-$199.50

Cleveland Holiday Flea

Fri., Nov. 16 and Fri., Dec. 14

It's tough to even think about Christmas when we have Halloween and Thanksgiving to get through first, but it's important to note that the Cleveland Flea is back for another round of holiday cheer this season. Last November and December, the Cleveland Flea took over Ohio City's former Unique Thrift space. But now that a Planet Fitness is there, the winter-themed event is headed to the renovated Madison. As the indoor space is smaller than Cleveland Flea's summertime Tyler Village spot (and even its recent East Side Flea), event planners chose to add 50 to 75 booths featuring enough locally-made and antique items to cheer up even the biggest Scrooge around. The holiday market takes place from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday. (Laura Morrison) 4601 Payne Ave., theclevelandflea.com.
