Brooklyn Comedy Festival
Through Aug. 30
New comedy, proven comedy, weird comedy — be prepared for anything during the third annual Brooklyn Comedy Festival, which gives talent at all levels the chance to perform. Many shows are free, with average admission about $5, and don’t miss the wrap party, Sunday at 1 p.m. at Crown Victoria. It’s open to the public, has drink specials and should be good for a laugh.
Elvis Duran’s End of Summer Bash
Aug. 27, 6-9 p.m.
Pier 15, 78 South St.
Free with RSVP
Outdoor party season is fading fast, so get to Elvis Duran’s End of Summer Bash. Food, drink and, of course, music will be taking over Pier 15, including the Watermark Bar and Hornblower Yacht. RSVP at Z100.com but get there early, because the pier will close once it hits capacity (which might happen fast, considering there’ll be giant beer pong and mini golf).
Harley-Davidson NYC Anti-Fashion Show
Aug. 27, 6-9 p.m.
Harley-Davidson of NYC, 376 Broadway
Motorcycles are not for everyone. But it’s OK to covet the biker-chic look. Harley-Davidson is hosting its first ever pop-up shopping event for jewelry, fashion and motorcycles this Thursday at its Manhattan location, with collaborations by Brooklyn Heavy Metal, Grifter and Feltraiger. Sip a free Sixpoint Brewery beer while taking in the “anti-fashion show,” all for free. Reserve a spot by emailing RSVP@collective-comm.com.
Roulette, 509 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn
Indulge your inner voyeur while broadening your horizons this weekend, when sex columnist Dan Savage brings his Hump! Tour to NYC. Seattle’s annual Hump! Film Festival, started by Savage in 2005, solicits five-minute adult videos from amateurs with the goal of helping audiences discover the fringes of sex from the point of view of the people who love it there. You’ll have five chances to catch 18 of the best-ever Hump! submissions, covering the spectrum of kinks, at Roulette. Leave your hang-ups at home.

Central Park Conservancy Film Festival
Through Aug. 29, 8 p.m.
Central Park, Enter at 72nd St. and Central Park West
It’s everything you need for your next date night: sunset in the park, a cozy blanket, a summer breeze and a free movie. Celebrating the 35 th anniversary of the Central Park Conservancy, five movies created in 1980 will be screened on the lawn by Sheep’s Meadow. You can RSVP online and arrive early to secure your spot; the event opens at 6:30 with a DJ set. “Airplane!” and “Raging Bull” are this Thursday and Friday, while “Superman II” screens on Saturday, Sept. 3.
Aug. 28 & 30, Sept. 3
You can dance if you want to – just do so quietly at the Lincoln Center’s three upcoming Silent Discos. What started as an annual rite is now in all five boroughs, coming to Staten Island, the Bronx and Queens on Aug. 28, Aug. 30 and Sept. 3. Two DJs will play tunes (not all of it disco) on alternating channels.
Professor Hemlock’s Mansion
Aug. 29, 11:30 a.m. ($30), 4:30 p.m. ($40), 8:30 p.m. ($50)
2 E. 63rd St.
If you think you could’ve solved “Clue,” then here’s your chance to prove it. In the halls of the eccentric inventor Professor Hemlock’s 1920s mansion, there are foul things afoot amid the splendor of the Gatsby era. Expect seances, a Dapper Magician’s Den (fancy dirty magic?), flappers and the sounds of Michael Arenella’s Dreamland Orchestra as part of the immersive theater experience, in which everyone is part of the show.
Aug. 29, 4:30 p.m.
Museum of Modern Art, 11 W. 53rd St.
“Here’s looking at you, kid.” To some it’s a classic quote, but it’s probably quoted most often to Isabella Rossellini and Pia Lindstrom, daughters of the late Ingrid Bergman, leading lady in the black-and-white movie masterpiece “Casablanca.” Both sisters will be on hand at the Museum of Modern Art this Saturday to discuss their mother’s most famous work. The screening is $12 and complements the museum’s current exhibit, “Ingrid Bergman: A Centennial Celebration.”
DFA Records Summer Hot Dog
Aug. 29, 9 p.m.
Good Room, 98 Meserole Ave., Brooklyn
The combined powers of LCD Soundsystem, Eric Copeland and Black Dive should be enough to keep you going at this all-night dance party taking place Saturday at Brooklyn’s Good Room. DJs and other artists from the label will be playing from 9 p.m. until 4 a.m. Several surprises, including a special musical guest, are in store for the party faithful. So cancel those Sunday brunch plans — because you’ll be sleeping in.
Aug. 29, 6 p.m.
Gramercy Theatre, 127 E. 23rd St.
If Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande had a baby (stay with us), it would be Megan Nicole. The 19-year-old made a name for herself posting pop covers on YouTube. Her first original, “B-e-a-utiful,” was a breakout hit in 2011. Like all ambitious teen singer-songwriters, Megan Nicole is also an actress; her debut film, “Summer Forever” (also the title of one of her songs), comes out this month. We suggest finding out if this is real life by seeing the starlet’s concert this weekend at Gramercy Theatre.
