Head to comedian Cameron Esposito’s show at the Kennedy Center this weekend and you just might end up getting some self-defense tips as well. In a clip from her upcoming special Marriage Material, she recommends sleeping with a pillow on one’s chest, thereby preventing a potential stabbing from an intruder. Protection from stranger danger aside, expect Esposito to be ready with material from her life as a newlywed (she married fellow comedian Rhea Butcher, who happens to be her opening act on this mini tour, late last year) as well as her takes on politics and current events. The really interesting dirt will come if Esposito chooses to discuss her role in Garry Marshall’s upcoming ensemble comedy, Mother’s Day. If it’s anywhere close to as hokey as its spiritual predecessors Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, Esposito’s reports from the set will be twice as entertaining as what’s on the screen. Cameron Esposito performs with Rhea Butcher at 6 p.m. at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater, 2700 F St. NW. Free. (202)467-4600. kennedy-center.org.
