What salacious irony! Only in Hollywood could the wholesome father on the fluffy Full House family friendly kids’ show also be the rawest stand-up comic around, whose blue streak is beyond X-rated. So which is the real deal? Well, there’s a reason Bob Saget titled his autobiography Dirty Daddy. And that’s the guy who will take the stage and hold nothing back when he opens his mouth and the gags spill out. Maybe he’ll repeat the “Dirtiest joke in the World,” a racy record he set after appearing in The Aristocrats. He definitely won’t be introducing any America’s Funniest Home Videos in his uber-raunchy comedy act, but you can be sure there will be some very funny, yet filthy, moments worth taking home and talking about—once the tykes aren’t within earshot, because offending those with delicate sensibilities is the furthest thing from Saget’s mind. Not. NYCB Theatre at Westbury, 960 Brush Hollow Rd., Westbury. venue.thetheatreatwestbury.com $30-$100. 8 p.m. Mar. 24.

The hit songs by these Motown legends became part of who we are, providing the Sixties soundtrack to our American souls. The Temptations and the Four Tops have always been a classy act, from their choreographed moves to their stirring harmonies. The Four Tops are sure to perform their mega-hits like “Reach Out and I’ll Be There” and “Ain’t No Woman (Like the One I Got),” and The Temptations will no doubt roll out “My Girl” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” just to name a few of the Top 40 wonders that came out of Detroit and put the Motor City on the map of our musical consciousness forever after.

Last In Line
This band began jamming in an L.A. rehearsal room way back in 2011, when Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Vivian Campbell got together casually and realized that the chemistry they’d had in 1984 hadn’t faded a molecule. Once upon a time, they’d all been co-conspirators with Ronnie Dio. Soon they brought in Andrew Freeman on vocals and kicked it up a notch. They took their name from the second Dio album and wound up recording original material on their debut, Heavy Crown, which dropped in February last year. Sadly, they lost Jimmy Bain just weeks before its release. His spirit lives on in their music, as countless fans in the United States and Europe can attest. With Phil Soussan on base and Erik Norlander on keyboards, Last in Line is ready to move to the front where they belong! Not to be missed. The Space at Westbury, 250 Post Ave., Westbury. thespaceatwestbury.com $25-$30. 8 p.m. Mar. 25.
Notorious B.I.G. Tribute Show
Has it really been 20 years since the murder of Notorious B.I.G.? Yes, homies, it happened in L.A. on March 9, 1997, when Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G. as well as Biggie Smalls, was gunned down in a drive-by shooting that has never been solved. The conspiracy theories live on—and so does his contribution to pop culture. The classic Bad Boy Entertainment icon from Brooklyn would have turned 45 on May 21. This tour continues to pay him the respect he deserves for being the driving force behind hip-hop music. As Fuse’s Bianca Gracie once put it, if you’re a shiny suit-rocking ’90s hip-hop lover, this tribute show is intended for you. Be there, or be square. With Gravy & Special Guests. Damn.

Eric Wilzig & John Pizzi
Talk about an insanely magical evening! Eric Wilzig is an award-winning master illusionist. John Pizzi is one of the top stand-up comics and ventriloquists on stage today.
