If you've always wanted to know which Smothers brother "mom liked best," join the duo and their special guest, the "Yo-Yo Man," during their unusual musical-comedy performance Sunday at Rams Head Tavern. The brothers (Tom and Dick Smothers) made their television debut in 1961 on The Jack Paar Show, and had their own television comedy show, "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour," by 1967. Their show is said to have helped shape the political and social humor of 1960s America, tackling subjects such as religion, war, drugs and sex. It was not originally expected to be such a success, but garnered high ratings and lasted for two seasons. In addition to writing, producing, directing and performing several other variations of the original TV hit, the brothers have produced 12 top-selling comedy albums and headlined in Las Vegas, Reno and Lake Tahoe. 7 p.m. Sunday. Rams Head Tavern, 33 West St., Annapolis. $79.50. 410-268-4545.


The American Chamber Players perform everything from 18th-century Mozart to more contemporary pieces by late 19th- and early 20th-century composer Gabriel Faure.

The group's members -- clarinetist Loren Kitt, violinist Joanna Maurer, cellist Michael Mermagen, pianist Edward Newman, flutist Sara Stern, and violist Hoffman -- have performed throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Tomorrow, the American Chamber Players will perform Franz Schubert's "Trout Quintet" along with Guillaume Lekeu's quartet for piano and strings. 8:15 p.m. Francis Scott Key Auditorium, Mellon Hall, St. John's College, 60 College Ave., Annapolis.
