Welcome to 2019!

Start off the first weekend of the new year with something light and fun — like Friday’s “Fifty First Jokes!” The 13th annual extravaganza of wit will feature 50 comedians taking the stage of the Bell House (149 Seventh St. at Third Avenue in Gowanus, www.thebellhouseny.com) to deliver the first joke that they have written this year. Your $15 ticket will get you performances from comics including host John F. O’Donnell, Jo Firestone, Liza Treyger, Rob Haze, Saurin Choksi, and 45 others. The show starts at 8 pm.

On Saturday, you can get in on the ground floor of the next glam thing! A work-in-progress opera about identity called “Chimera” will debut tonight at National Sawdust (National Sawdust (80 N. Sixth St. at Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, www.nationalsawdust.org). The show features seven different drag performers — including former “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant Alexis Michelle, and 11-year-old Park Slope “drag kid” Desmond is Amazing — as different aspects of the Chimera’s personality. It all kicks off at 7 pm with a performance from all–female band Maenu. Tickets are $22.

And if you get inspired by the outfits of Saturday night, dress up on Sunday afternoon for the “I Will Survive” Dreamland Discoteque roller disco party, at the new indoor Dreamland Roller Rink (233 37th St. at Second Avenue in Sunset Park, www.dreamlandrollerrink.com). The all-ages (actually, age 7 and older) event lasts from 1 pm to 4 pm. A $20 ticket will get you a roller skate rental and groove-a-licious tunes from Gloria Gaynor and other divas, a contume contest, and a 1970s “Soul Train”-style dance line. There is a full bar for adults, and you can get lunch at the food court of the far side of the courtyard.

Rolling around the rink is good for you —but rolling a joint? Just say no! That is the lesson of the over-the-top 1936 propaganda film “Reefer Madness,” screening at 9:30 pm screening as part of the “Weird Wednesday” series at Alamo Drafthouse (445 Albee Square West between Fulton and Willoughby streets Downtown, www.drafthouse.com/nyc). Learn how just a single hit of “doobie” will lead to hallucinations, madness, and murder! And tickets are just $10 tonight, so you can spend the rest of your cash satifying the munchies.
