Pilgrims, Pilgrims, Pilgrims

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman bring their gruesome twosome Kiki & Herb—who failed to die for us two years ago at Carnegie Hall—back to New York. After terrorizing Broadway for a month this past August, Kiki promises to pull herself together again long enough to entertain her rabid fans at Joe’s Pub for four late-night performances. And after a dry run on the Great White Way, what better venue than one where the audience can get as liquored up as Kiki? It’s bound to be a looser, loopier show than the scripted Broadway outing, which means seemingly endless, hysterical tangents and innumerable encores. Just show up prepared for a rage-fueled, endless night of booze, laughter and tears. A friendly warning: Kiki loves clambering on top of tabletops, so get there early and eat fast.

Nov. 15 & 16; 26 &27. Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette St, (betw. Astor Pl. & E.4th St.), 212-967-7555; 11:30, $2.
