We’re not sure if he incorporates tripping all over himself during his onstage performances like he does in most of his movies, but Paul Blart himself will leave his Segway and pornstache at home for a one-night-only show, which he’ll probably use to help promote his sequel Mall Cop 2, hitting theaters in April. James had a nice run on TV with The King of Queens, but the films that followed aren’t what anyone would consider comedy gold. Look for him to make amends by going back to his stand-up comedy roots and seeing what happens when he’s not tethered to Adam Sandler. $45-$75, 7pm Tuesday, Majestic Theater, 224 E. Houston St., 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
