COMEDY CENTER

You probably remember David Alan Grier garnering laughs as a hyperactive child or a crotchety old man or even an obnoxious high school shop teacher on Fox Network's hit variety show "In Living Color" back in the 1990s. Grier is still making audiences laugh today, and he's even gained a Tony Award and starred in several Broadway shows along the way. Now, he's teaming up with the Kennedy Center's jazz artistic adviser, Jason Moran, and the Big Bandwagon, and comedians Marina Franklin and Faizon Love, who's known for his role as Buddy's disgruntled manager in "Elf," for an unforgettable evening of endless laughs at the Kennedy Center (2700 F St. NW).

Tickets range from $20 to $55, and you can purchase yours at kennedy-center.org. The show starts at 7 p.m.

STRING SENSATION

What better way to spend your Sunday evening than with one of the world's most talented string quartets? The Phillips Collection (1600 21st St. NW) is honored to host the Doric String Quartet, a group so accomplished that its members already have racked up a slew of accolades in their young career, such as winning first place in the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan and second place in the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy.

The quartet, which formed in 1998, has collaborated with highly acclaimed artists including Ian Bostridge, Philip Langridge and more. And now, Washingtonians get a chance to see the group live.

The show starts at 4 p.m. Tickets cost $20, which includes admission to the museum. So go early and check out a few of the exhibitions, like Per Kirkeby's Paintings and Sculpture.
