Readings / Performance   Paul Zaloom: The Mother of All Enemies World Premiere at The Redcat, 1/18.  “Wickedly funny puppeteer and satirist gives new meaning to the term ‘shadow government’ with his latest whirlwind spectacle, a politicized update of the traditional Middle Eastern ‘Zaragoz’ shadow play.  Using a glut of low-rent special effects, Zaloom plays out a frenetically comic epic in which his Karagoz, a queer-secular humanist-Quaker-Buddhist-agnostic Arab immigrant artist, somehow outfoxes a horde of pursuing adversaries made up of Homeland Security, Al Qaeda, the Statue of Liberty, the Christian Coalition, Minutemen vigilantes, and Israeli and Syrian agents.” Walt Disney Concert Hall, W. 2nd St., Downtown L.A.  More info: www.redcat.org.   Barbara Seranella at Duttons Brentwood, 12/18   William Winoker at Barnes & Noble, 1/17, 7:30p.m.  1201 3rd St. Promenade, Santa Monica Lenny Bruce: In His Own Words at Uncabaret, 1/14, 8 p.m. (1253 N.
