Lil Rel Howery has received mainstream attention by providing comic relief in “Get Out” and headlining the short-lived sitcom “Rel.” But “Live in Crenshaw,” his first HBO stand-up special, is aimed squarely at the African-American community with references to gospel numbers, the late Nipsey Hussle and a black family’s brawl at Disneyland that went viral this past summer. Viewers unfamiliar with the source material will still get a kick out of Howery’s high-energy, sweat-pouring performance, recorded in a South L.A. high school gym that doesn’t appear to have air conditioning.

Shania Twain will run through a medley of her greatest hits during the “2019 American Music Awards.” Taylor Swift, who is being honored as artist of the decade, will most likely offer up a retrospective of her own — but it’s not a given.

Chances are that by the time cameras roll, everyone will have calmed down.
