Comedian Richard Lewis of Curb Your Enthusiasm
When: November 3, 8 p.m.
Where: Patchogue Theatre, 71 East Main Street, Patchogue
What: Richard Lewis has taken his lifelong therapy fodder and carved it into a compelling art form. After all these years, Lewis remains addicted to performing before live audiences and is on a continuous Tracks of My Fears stand-up tour. His live performances are often compared to those of a jazz musician for his wild riffs that fly out into space but always find a way to float back into rhythm, as they splatter recurring themes against a spiraling, lyrical backdrop.

Nazi Looted Art Cases Presentation
When: November 4, 1 p.m.
Where: Hampton Bays Public Library, 52 Ponquogue Avenue, Hampton Bays
What: Join Raymond Dowd, an attorney specializing in copyright litigation and Nazi art looting, for this presentation about art looting during the Second World War and how sales of stolen works bankrolled large parts of the Nazi war machine. You will also learn about laws passed in the wake of the looting to return stolen art to its rightful owners, and the extent to which those laws have been successful, via the exploration of past and ongoing cases.
