Damme it!

Protect your nuts, guys. At Videology’s Van Damme Fight Night, comedians will announce Jean Claude Van Damme fight scenes as if they were real bouts, and you can cheer for the Muscles From Brussels (even though you know who wins). There will also be Van Damme trivia and a tight-pants high-kick competition.

11 pm at Videology [308 Bedford Ave. between South First and South Second streets in Williamsburg, (718) 782–3468, www.videology.info]. Free.

Saturday

March 7

Show-offs

The Show/Tell Show is just like elementary school show and tell, but with booze, prizes, comedy, and far more cursing. Which is to say: way, way better. Bring something weird to talk about and you could win $20, or just see other people share their crazy possessions and stories, plus stand-up sets from comedians.

8 pm at Over the Eight (594 Union Ave. at Richardson Street in Williamsburg, www.overtheeight.com). Free.

Sunday

March 8

Fab 4-year-olds

It is never too early to indoctrinate your children into loving the Beatles. At Beatles for Little Rockers, kids 10 and under learn to rock out to tunes from the greatest band of all time — as played by duo the London Souls — and complete a magical mystery art activity. Don’t worry, it’ll be years before they start questioning what “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” is really about.

11:30 am at Brooklyn Bowl [61 Wythe Ave. between N. 11th and N. 12th streets in Williamsburg, (718) 963–3369, www.brooklynbowl.com]. $10.

Tuesday

March 10

Water works

Meet the man behind the myth. History-loving author Mark Adams will be at Word bookstore to talk to comedian John Hodgman about his new book “Meet Me in Atlantis,” in which he tracks down people attempting to track down the fictional (or is it? [yes, it is]) city of Atlantis.

7 pm at Word [126 Franklin St. at Milton Street in Greenpoint, (718) 838–0096, www.wordbookstores.com]. Free.

Wednesday

March 11

Ladies night

Sisters have been doin’ it for themselves for a long time. It is Women’s History Month and the Brooklyn Historical Society is celebrating some important ladies from the 19th century to today with a discussion of women and power. Panelists will include experts on Catherine Beecher, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Angela Davis, and Brooklyn’s own Shirley Chisholm.

6:30 pm at Brooklyn Historical Society [128 Pierrpont St. at Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 222–4111, www.brooklynhistory.org]. Free.
