  • Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival

    Tiny little festival, you've probably never heard of it. With a meager, little-known headliner or two – Demetri Martin, maybe? Possibly Hannibal Buress? Kids in the Hall? Aziz Ansari? Maria, uh, Bamford? Yeah, yeah, OK: It's only THE BIGGEST COMEDY FESTIVAL TO EVER HIT THE ATX, come back again for its third annual showcase and taking over this burgeoning town with some of the best and brightest comics in the whole damn world. (Bonus: A plethora of locals, too, because we're all awesome like that.) Check the Moontower website for the whole line-up and other details; get your fest passes and tickets while you still can. Wed.-Sat., April 23-26.

    Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress, 512/472-5470
