It’s a Friday night in January, and while it’s not high tide in viewing options, there’s some fun stuff out there if you know where to look. We suggest saluting the arts, indulging in some gruffly neurotic comic stylings, and waxing nostalgic with classic toys from galaxies far, far away — toys which may or may not be worth money.
Tom Segura: Mostly Stories [Netflix]
Kick off your Friday night with the latest comedy special from Tom Segura. Filmed in Seattle’s Neptune Theater, the bitter comedian takes on piercings, what cars really say about a person and a lie he once told Mike Tyson.
In Performance at the White House [PBS, 9p]
MC Lyte, Shorty Trombone, Buddy Guy, and Audra McDonald are among the many performers.
Pawn Stars [History, 9p]
Whether you set up elaborate stories (maybe with Han Solo teaming up with Brainy Smurf to save the Fisher-Price car wash…just me?…carry on, then) or kept them sealed in an immaculately kept box locked in a vault, it should be fun to see how much these treasures are actually worth.
