This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

WED 16

Whodunnit? Who knows -- but you can bet shears were involved.
Whodunnit? Who knows -- but you can bet shears were involved.

Talk about strange bedfellows. One is an over-garrulous, fashion-dictating talk show queen; the other, a permanent therapy patient recounting his dysfunctional family. Yes, it's Joan Rivers and Louie Anderson, and they're performing tonight at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts (701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach). There's a good chance you're too young to remember Rivers back when she, you know, did something worthwhile ("Who are you wearing?!" -- Arggh! Make it stop!). But it's true; the multi-talented comedienne has been honored with both an Emmy Award and (yup) the Harvard Instant Pudding Award -- something the admittedly food-lovin' Anderson would like to display on his mantle. With a shtick based mostly on tales of his troubled upbringing, it's only appropriate that Anderson was once host of Family Feud. Let's hope his recent appearance on Dr. Phil hasn't affected his comedy. Show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $15 to $100. Call 561-832-7469. (JB)
