Pete Lee

Fri., Oct. 18


The first standup comedian to get a standing ovation on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, comedian Pete Lee likes to joke about how he's such a huge people pleaser, he even hugs Uber drivers goodbye and offers to drive for them. The nerdy comic is currently a cast member of TruTV's Greatest Ever and hosts NFL Rush on Nickelodeon's Nick Toons. He performs at 7 and 9 tonight at Hilarities, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday. Check the website for ticket prices. (Niesel) 216-241-7425

Moses and Millionaires, Rockefeller and Rock 'n' Roll

Fri., Oct. 18


John J. Grabowski, a historian and professor who authored Cleveland A to Z, and Alan F. Dutka, a researcher and speaker who wrote Cleveland Millionaires' Row, will appear tonight at 7:30 at Visible Voice books for a joint book talk and signing. Cleveland A to Z features 72 short articles about real people, places and events that reveal the issues, attitudes and quirks that define our fine town. Grabowski originally developed the book for the Western Reserve Historical Society's 150th anniversary celebration, and almost every historical photo is pulled from its collection. Cleveland's Millionaire's Row "examines a particular point in the city's development — a moment when extravagant monuments to the immense wealth and power lined Euclid Avenue." It includes visuals and "well-researched commentary." Admission is free. There will be food, beverages (including beer, wine and coffee) and books available for purchase. (Niesel) 216-961-0084

John Witherspoon

Fri., Oct. 18


If you're going to see comedian John Witherspoon tonight at the Improv, where he performs at 7:30 and 10, you'd better dress up — because "you got to coordinate," as he puts it. That catchphrase comes from one of the comedian's signature routines. Witherspoon has worked alongside famous comedians such as Ice Cube, Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy and Chris Tucker, and starred as Pops on The Wayans Brothers. But he might be best known for voicing "Grandad" on the animated series The Boondocks. His standup routine is even similar to the Boondocks character he portrays; it features fast-paced jokes that keep coming at you. He has shows scheduled at the Improv through Sunday. Tickets are $25.

Celine Dion

Fri., Oct. 18, 7:30 p.m.


After a longtime residency at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Celine Dion is bringing her angelic vocals to the rest of North America and beyond this fall on the Courage World Tour, which comes on the heels of the 51-year-old being named L'Oreal makeup's newest spokesperson. She also announced a new album is in the works, also called Courage, the first since 2013's Loved Me Back to Life. Fans of the French Canadian songstress can expect a glittering show full of death-defying vocal gymnastics as well as epic chest-thumping. "My Heart Will Go On" will be there, and so will all of the other hits. This is the Dion's first world tour in a decade. (Laura Morrison) 216-420-2000

Copenhagen

Fri., Oct. 18 and Fri., Oct. 25


Presented by Cesear's Forum in a limited engagement, the Tony Award-winning Copenhagen centers on an actual meeting that took place between the two great physicists, Germany's Werner Heisenberg and Denmark's Niels Bohr, in 1941, in occupied Denmark. The play is presented fictionally, "inside the heads" of three characters, as they relive their memories and speculate on the meaning, and consequences, of their actions. A deep dive into the difficulty of ever truly knowing oneself or others, Copenhagen is as much about philosophy as physics. Tonight's performance takes place at 8 in the intimate Kennedy's Down Under, in Playhouse Square. Tickets cost $18, and the show continues through Oct. 26. (Niesel) 216-241-6000
