    Allen Strickland Williams

    What is it with these people with three names? With this Williams from Los Angeles, it's being picked as one of Comedy Central's "Comics to Watch." And it's slaying crowds at SXSW, Moontower, Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, L.A.'s RIOT Festival, and more. And it's rocking the Velv stage this weekend, with his inimitable style and special guests.
    Dec. 14-15. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm. $10.

If you do how good they are, you'll be thrilled to experience this best-of-the-best weekend, featuring house troupes and acts from all the comedy theatres in town, with stand-up showcases and hilarious sketches and, Jesus, this is some kind of comedy explosion going on here right now.

    Immigrants, the Musical: No Place Like Home

    This is a Hamilton-inspired show in which, each week, a new monologist tells of their experience in coming from Mexico, from Russia, from Vietnam, from El Salvador, and more. Then the cast, directed by Lahari Dunn and Asaf Ronen, expands these stories into "fully improvised musicals, giving life to the emotion, the journey, and the laughs and hardships along the way." Note: The Chronicle's Robert Faires recently took in a show, and here's his reaction. Featured this final week: Marcia Sanchez from Mexico.
    Through Dec. 21. Fridays, 8pm. $10-12.
