You might have missed it, but it snowed last night, real snow. Of course, it wasn’t the kind of snow you could frolic in, so don’t worry if you missed it. Instead worry about still getting your frolicking in tonight, since you deserve it. A look at the Brokelyn Events Calendar shows that there’s plenty of ways you can do it even though there’s no snow, so get a look at the best picks from it and make some plans to get out there.

What better way to spend a Tuesday than by taking refuge from the sudden cold in a comedy club that has a very low cover charge and a BYOB policy? Also, we’re sure The Experiment wouldn’t book anyone bad, so check out Night Cheese, where your hosts Brian Bahe and Stu Melton will bring you jokes from ¬†Caitlin McKee, Patrick Hastie and five more comics. I mean, that winds up coming out to less than $1 per comic, which is a great bargain, just fantastic.
8pm, The Experiment Comedy Gallery, 20 Broadway, Williamsburg, $5

Christmas is done, so everyone can stop arguing about what the best Christmas movies are, and instead just enjoying movies on their merits. Or for how good they go along with drinking games, which the people at Halyards think Love, Actually does. So whether you love the love, love the idea of $8 hot toddies and an ugly sweater contest or just love drinking yourself into a mess as Hugh Grant makes you uncomfortable, tonight should have something for everyone.
8pm, Halyards, 406 3rd Avenue, Gowanus, FREE

Now that it’s finally, maybe for real, getting and staying cold, it’s singer/songwriter season. Just a single person up on stage, spinning some yarns that you can usually warm up with by noting that your life isn’t as bad as the subject of the song. Tonight at Freddy’s, Scott Phillips is bringing some tales of drunken fumblings and fear and loathing from Raleigh, North Carolina to South Slope, tales he tells with the help of an accordion, piano and guitar.
6pm, Freddy’s Bar, 627 5th Avenue, South Slope, FREE

I can’t totally understand what’s going to happen in this event at Over the Eight tonight, but I do know that anytime a character as ridiculous as The King of The Memes is being rolled out, it’s going to be a fun night. It seems like two people, comedians Justin Flanagan and Colin Stokes, will do faux-serious analysis of image macros, an example of which can be found here.

As we all know, comedians are known for their exceptional self-control and their emotional stability. So they’re obviously the perfect people to take life lessons from, especially ones that ball of neuroses Jo Firestone trusts to teach you things. Tonight, learn all about how to set boundaries from comics Jeff Stark and Chelsea Wagner, who come with the additional bonus characteristic of being a couple that lives together. Pay attention, it’s one of your last chances for self-improvement in 2015.
7pm, Pete’s Candy Store, 709 Lorimer Street, Williamsburg, FREE
