  • Austin Sketch Fest

    "An annual showcase featuring the best scripted comedy from Austin and the wilderness beyond." And with those innocent PR-touted words, the eighth incarnation of the Austin Sketch Fest gets under way, preparing to rampage through the streets of your urban funnybone with the likes of James Adomian and Reductress and The Pretty Boys and Nipsey and … fuck, we haven't even mentioned a local group yet, have we? We're, like, pimping Los Angeles and NYC here, what? Well, listen, Austin-loversThe Neighborhood! Master Pancake! The Menenists! Mac Blake and friends! The Back Pack! And, could it be? Is it possibly … a reunion of Your Terrific Neighbors? (Answer: Hell, yes.) And so much more, for an entire week of bust-a-gut-laughing good times spilling off the stages at ColdTowne and Spider House. Get yourself an all-fest-pass, citizen, and prepare for night after night of often odd sometimes spectacular hilarity. May 22-28, $30-50

  • Chris Cubas

    Is he still a local comic? Or is Chris Cubas, in fact, an international comedy sensation sort of man at this point? How about, both. How about, you do your reality-fucked mind a favor and catch him live at Cap City this weekend. May 24-27. Wed.-Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 8 & 10:30pm, $12-23

    Cap City Comedy Club, 8120 Research #100, 512/467-2333

  • It's … it's … HIDEOUTRAGEOUS!

    There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows here. This Thursday brings you the Threefer and Free Fringe of improv, and you can check out that award-winning Parallelogramophonograph (hot off their European tour) and the fancy-ass Big Bash and more on Friday, and dig the Goonies-flavored goodness of How I Saved the World Over Summer Vacation on Saturdays, right after the Eighties-evoking police drama of Buddy Cop and right before that extemporaneous donnybrook that mortals call Maestro. See website for more. $5-15

    The Hideout Theatre, 617 Congress, 512/443-3688
