The hot list
GAFFIGAN'LL MAKE 'EM LAUGH OUT LOUD
Jim Gaffigan is hilarious. That is all.
But seriously, the guy is funny, and the last time he was here (in 2007) he had the sold-out crowd in stitches; we expect the same this time around. The comedian and actor is scheduled to perform at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Blaisdell Concert Hall.
Gaffigan is best known for his comedy specials on Comedy Central, and gained massive popularity with his first special, 2006's "Beyond the Pale," in which he made hilariously wry observations about laziness and unhealthy eating habits.
Currently on "The Sexy Tour" (don't worry, parents — the title is a joke and isn't meant to imply that Gaffigan has abandoned his clean-comedy ways), Gaffigan has a new arsenal of material that may or may not include segments on bacon and Hot Pockets.

'SHREK,' THE FOURTH — AND FINAL
The fourth installment of the beloved "Shrek" franchise opens today, and it's true what they say: It's the final chapter. "Shrek Forever After" is the story of a domesticated Shrek who's longing for the good old days when he was a mean, scary ogre.
