With all of our fave shows shooting around the neighborhood (e.g. Girls, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), there’s not much to watch on actual TV. Luckily some of our favorite performers are reviving some classic shows on stage.
Doctor Who: A Hotsy Totsy Burlesque Tribute
Thursday, Sept. 10, 8pm, at The Slipper Room, 167 Orchard St., at Stanton St.; Lower East Side; tickets $10

With National Lampoon presenting the whole affair and “puppet lovemaking” promised, it’s safe to say the answer is no.

If you missed your chance to hang in Jerry’s apartment and get berated by the Soup Nazi, giddy-up over to UCB’s twisted version of a Seinfeld episode, complete with slap-bass intro and slapstick Kramer (see a previous attempt above). If the improvised version fails to live up to the original, no biggie: there’s a 51-percent chance Larry David is bringing back his post-Seinfeld hit, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Every time he thinks he’s out of it, they pull him back in…
