Uzair Malik headlines a six-comic show coming Saturday to Cambridge.

While Cambridge and Somerville await the return of club comedy at venues such as The Comedy Studio and Duck Duck Goofs, we’re seeing no slowdown of shows presented in nontraditional venues – and this week’s highlight is no different. If you’re up for a laugh but also want to explore the handmade artistry Cambridge has to offer, the MIT-area Black-owned Popp Boutique will serve as a serene and welcoming host for a night of local comedy. A far cry from the typical trappings of a comedy club, show attendees will get to laugh among “beautiful artwork, handcrafted scented goods, crystals, body oils and so much more” from Mahogany Expression and The Journey Within. Chef Phil has assembled a variety of talented local comedians, including Uzair Malik (Boston Comedy Festival), Ariana Seymourian (Portland Maine Comedy Festival), Alexis Cristaldi, Guerby Laguerre and Trent Wells.

The Popp Boutique Comedy Show is 7 p.m. Saturday at Popp Boutique, 301 Massachusetts Ave., The Port, Cambridge. $15
