MUSIC

Morgan State Choir

One of Baltimore's best-known exports is the Morgan State University Choir, which is one of the greatest choral groups in the nation. Tomorrow at 7 p.m. in Meyerhoff Hall, the choir and its gifted music director, Nathan Carter, will give its annual benefit concert -- a program of selections from its repertoire of spirituals, anthems, popular and gospel music. Tickets are $12, $18 and $30. Proceeds go entirely to Morgan State's scholarship fund. For tickets, call (410) 783-8000. "The Last Boy Scout" is one of those machine-made hits that has more to do with marketing than filmmaking, put together by a committee of sharpies in Armani suits rather than a single director. Bruce Willis plays a Secret Service agent buddied up with ex-QB Damon Wayans as the two penetrate a conspiracy involving pro football. But mainly it's about wisecracks and gunfire. Rated R. **.

Stephen Hunter Danny McWilliams, Bob Smith and Jaffe Cohen are stand-up comics who call their show "Funny Gay Males," and that's certainly accurate. Here's Smith talking about his dog: "It's half poodle and half pit bull; it's not a good attack dog, but it's a vicious gossip." The show isn't for everyone, but if you don't mind a little blue humor you'll have a gay old time. See them at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. Curtain times are tonight at 8 and 10:15 and tomorrow at 8 p.m. Admission is $15. Call (410) 752-8558.

TELEVISION

The Bundys go abroad

Folks who savor the more bizarre "sweeps" TV moments won't want to miss "Married . . . With Children" tomorrow night at 9 on WBFF (Channel 45). The Bundys go to England for the next three weeks as winners of a contest. The contest is sponsored by a village that can rid itself of an ancient curse by ridding the world of contemporary male Bundys. Remember when the Keatons went to England on "Family Ties" in 1985? This is the postmodern, parody version of the American-sitcom-family-abroad.
