‘Kevin!!!!!’

Comedy squad Recent Cutbacks take your favorite movies and re-enact them, with a needed dose of parody.

Dec. 1-Jan. 7, The Striker, 123 E. 24th St., $15, thepit-nyc.com

COMEDY

Broad Comedy

Harnessing that all-girl comedy magic that saved the latest “Ghostbusters” (you know you loved it), Broad Comedy offers that thrilling what-won’t-she-say Amy Schumer-Samantha Bee-Jessica Williams vibe in an unstoppable blend of live sketch comedy and musical satire. And they just happen to be in NYC this week to riff on the latest cultural news and gossip — and they’re not afraid to talk politics, so come wearing your big-kid pants.

THEATER

“Elements of Oz”

You may have seen “Wicked,” but you’ve never seen Oz quite like this. “Elements of Oz” is a new, interactive theatrical experience told through augmented reality, with portions of Dorothy’s story revealed through your smartphone (so bring it fully charged).

Baum’s magical world. Dec. 1-18, 3LD Art and Technology Center, 80 Greenwich St., $25, thebuildersassociation.org

Band of Merrymakers

This self-proclaimed “Holiday Supergroup” certainly boasts the talent to make it seem like special forces must be at play (especially special forces who really, really loved the ‘00s).

Seen last year at the Rockefeller Tree Lighting Ceremony, the group travels the country sharing holiday cheer with a mix of holiday standards and the hits that made them household names.

DRINKS

Battle of the Belgians

Compare over 20 brews at Jimmy’s No. 43 and help choose the ultimate winner this weekend during the seventh annual Battle of the Belgians. You’ll taste beers straight from Belgium, plus American ales inspired by the original--and if you don’t think a local pour should beat the real thing, you should definitely show up to vote.

Seventh St., $65, jimmysno43.com

PARTY

Supercinema: Nightmare Before Christmas

Before you get in that last bit of goodness so Santa keeps you on the nice list, come to the McKittrick Hotel’s immersive cinema party themed to the Tim Burton classic. As the citizens of Halloween Town know, “Life’s no fun without a good scare,” so expect surprises in addition to live performances and an open bar all night. Guests are invited to dress like the characters from the film or wear their most creative all-black ensemble. Tickets start at $95, or opt to see “Sleep No More” before the party, or arrive at 12:30 a.m. (the party goes until 4 a.m.) when the price drops to $55.

COMEDY

“Longing Lasts Longer”

Legendary New York entertainer and mouthy femme fatale Penny Arcade visits St. Ann’s Warehouse in the limited run of her new show, “Longing Lasts Longer,” a blend of memoir and comedy musing on NYC’s tragic decades-long downgrade in both character and stamina. And it won’t take the full 75 minutes to know that this nightlife maven’s got the experience to inform her offbeat, insightful, hilarious opinions, either. Brooklyn beware, no borough is spared. Dec. 4-11, St. Ann’s Warehouse, 45 Water St., Brooklyn, $35, stannswarehouse.org

GAME

Punderdome 3000

Ready for what will surely be an evening of holiday-related puns? The best part of Punderdome 3000 at Littlefield is that they hold over 100 tickets for the door, since the event regularly sells out, so if you need a dose of comedy next Tuesday, they’ll be waiting. Punderdome is basically a live game show full of silly word play (and a full bar, of course). Plus, the jokes are at least a few steps up from dad jokes; you surely got enough of those at Thanksgiving. Dec. 6, 8 p.m., Littlefield, 622 DeGraw St., littlefieldnyc.com

THEATER

“Tiny Beautiful Things”

It’s common to feel blue around the holidays, even when it’s not an election year. Fear not, the Public Theater brings a story of hope and resilience with “Tiny Beautiful Things.” Adapted for the stage by “Wild” author Cheryl Strayed, the play is in doubly good hands with director Thomas Kail (“Hamilton”). The story follows an advice columnist who has to dig deep inside herself when she’s confronted with life’s toughest questions. Dec. 7-31, Public Theater, 425 Lafayette St., $70-$85, publictheater.org

MUSIC

The Skivvies

‘Tis the season for meeting with friends, sipping spiked cider and watching singers get naked while they trot out a parade of zany friends to entertain you. Yes, there’s nothing like a Skivvies show at Christmastime. The cabaret scene favorites will perform holiday covers in their undies along with special guests like Randy Harrison, B.D. Wong, Nick Adams, Lindsay Nicole Chambers and more. (When people are getting naked onstage, you’ve gotta leave a few things to the imagination.) Dec. 7, 9:30 p.m., Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette St., $35, joespub.com
