Actor John Leguizamo takes the stage of the Arsht Center in Miami this weekend with his new one-man show, “Latin History for Morons,” inspired by the near total absence of Latin Americans in his son’s American History textbooks. In a search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school project, the actor dissects 3000 years of history from the Mayans to Pitbull in 110 minutes. Tickets start at $49 at ArshtCenter.org.

Comedy

Jokes are always funnier when the comedian is standing in front of you wearing only his birthday suit, right? Find out at Ronnie Larsen’s “Totally Naked Comedy Tour,” running through July 28 at Wilton Theater Factory, 2306 Dixie Hwy. in Wilton Manors. Three hunky comedians first take it all off and then fling their jokes at the audience. You might even see a “funny bone-r!” Tickets start at $35 at RonnieLarsen.com.

Cabaret

Who ever said Mondays are a night to stay in the house? Head down to Georgie’s Alibi/Monkey Bar for Michael Walters starring as Florida’s Own Dame Edna for a unique cabaret experience at 8 p.m. and then hang on for “5 Minutes of Fame,” an outrageous karaoke show hosted by the one-and-only T.P. Lords on the main stage. Drinks are always 2-4-1 until 9 p.m. More information at AlibiWiltonManors.com.

Television

If you absolutely must stay in tonight, tune in to Netflix for season 3 of “Wynonna Earp,” a favorite of our lesbian sisters, or try the downright campy mockumentary “Frankensteins Monsters Monster, Frankenstein.” (Try saying that three times quickly!) For LGBTQ families with gaybies, the streaming service releases Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” for a limited time only. Watch all at Netflix.com.
