Talk About the Weather With Al Gore

� NBC Universal, Inc.

Former Vice President Al Gore made a guest appearance during the Nov. 21 episode of Saturday Night Live as part of NBC's "Green Week." Gore was featured on an episode of 30 Rock earlier in the week. During the sketch, Gore said he would start "acting crazy" and "out crazy the crazy" in order to call attention to issues of climate change.

AN 'INCONVENIENT' TIME: Former Vice President Al Gore suffered one of the most memorable presidential election defeats in recent memory, but instead of following many former presidential candidates into obscurity, Gore has emerged as one of the most prominent environmentalist of our time.

STORY TIME: The New York storytelling group The Moth has attracted thousands of participants during the 10-plus years its been around, and it has finally branched out to Chicago with The Moth StorySLAM, which goes down at Martyrs'.

A panel of judges will come up with a score for each storyteller, and the one with the highest score goes on to the GrandSLAM Championship. 3855 N. Lincoln Ave.; North Center. 8 p.m. $7 cover.

HEAP IT ON: Imogen Heap brings her indie-electronic tunes and Bjork-ish fashion sense to the Vic, playing in support of her latest album, "Ellipse." Openers include Tim Exile and Back Ted N-Ted. 3145 N. Sheffield Ave.; Lakeview. 7 p.m. $21.50. All ages.
