1. Katt Williams at Joe Louis Arena

Cincinnati-born comedian Katt Williams performs stand-up comedy like a minister in church — sweating, preaching and highly animated — but his act is far more profanity-laced. The 44-year-old comedy veteran is set to appear in the comedy “Bastards” later this year with Owen Wilson, Ed Helms, J.K. Simmons, Ving Rhames and Glen Close. 8 p.m. Saturday. $52-$175. 19 Steve Yzerman, Detroit. (313) 471-6611.

2. Winter Blast at Campus Martius

Ice skating, dog sleds, snowshoeing, zip lining and a 200-foot snow slide are all part of the fun at the annual Winter Blast. The outdoor event also has tents with bands and food from local restaurants. This year the event aims to raise $75,000 for the the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday. Admission is a $2 donation to Matrix Human Services, one children’s book or three canned food items. 800 Woodward, Detroit. winterblast.com.

3. Aretha Franklin

at Caesars Windsor

Detroit’s Queen of Soul recently showed the world that she still has the voice that will bring down the house when she stole the show at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony in December, performing Carole King’s “(You Make Mee Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” 9 Saturday. $35 Canadian and up. 377 Riverside Drive East, Windsor. (800) 991-7777.
