Wyatt Cenac really wants comedy fans to hear his latest live special, Brooklyn. It’s already streaming on Netflix, and he’s pumped up the limited-edition vinyl release with a promo video that explains how records are made, featuring a Henson-esque puppet rendering of Cenac. But even if the Black Cat’s audience members have heard most of the show’s material before the former Daily Show correspondent takes the stage, they’ll still enjoy his musings on the borough that’s become an adjective. He touches on everything from the weirdness of adults giving each other hickeys to his grandmother’s neighborhood becoming the setting for three sitcoms, poking fun at the things that make Brooklyn so Brooklyn-y. Expect quips on artisanal mayonnaise, finely dressed animals, and the kind of exceptionalism that turns some residents into insufferable urbanites. Wyatt Cenac performs at 7 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW. $20. (202) 667-4490. blackcatdc.com.
