    Comedy

    Holly Jolly Follies

    Musical comedy skits, magic, and a political satirical revue with the bustling backdrop of Sixth Street on view through the stagefront window! What does the current POTUS learn when Ivana, Melania, and Marla get together for the Trump Wives Club? (Does he learn anything, ever?) Plus, join those rowdy NFL Women in the tail-gaiting, trash-talking party of the year. And, best of all, it's time for the all-too-familiar Esther’s Follies Dysfunctional Family Holiday, which might just make your own clan seem like a sanctuary of emotional health in comparison. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson thrills the crowd with his Torched and Tango illusions. And you know Jesse Sublett's new Esther's book was just released, right?
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.

    Comedy

    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 the Big Bash fanciness and what that terrific Rachel & Dave have coming your way while Pgraph is outta town on Friday; and, on Saturday, it's the quadruple threat of that newsy Local on the Eights, the drama-fraught world of competitive dance in Dance Dreams, the Dickensian improv of Bah, Humbug!, and the extemporaneous competitive donnybrook of Maestro Raw. See website for more.
    Nov. 9-11. Thu.-Sat., 7:30-10pm

    Comedy

    It's … Institutional!

    Actually, Fuck, It's Christmas! The Institution's annual takedown of holiday madness roars back to life with Rudolph's shiny red heart dripping in its sketch-comedy maw on Fridays and Saturdays. Tom Booker directs this show in which "Alex Jones stops by with his truthified version of 'The 12 Days Of Christmas,' Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick reads 'Biblical Bedtime Stories,' and Santa Claudio crashes the party with premature Yule tidings." And there's the Friday late-night desecrations of God vs. the Devil, an improv smackdown in which those power-mad beings mercilessly fuck with the performers onstage. See website for more.
    $10.

    Comedy

    It's … subterranean!

    It's the underground space Downtown, swarming with improvisers and stand-up comics and sketch artists, here in the powerhouse founded by Chris Trew and Tami Nelson. Monday nights feature Fuck This Week, wherein your moans, groans, gripes, and complaints are turned into comedy gold. They let Rob Gagnon do his Sandbox thing on Tuesdays at 9pm, Wednesdays get some work done in the Garage, Thursday witches up The Coven and Boyband's Christmas Summer Beach Party, and Friday goes Off Script and brings that supersexy advice-rich Naughty Bits show back, whereas Saturday's stage is localized with the return of The Neighborhood, and – ah, see website for more shows and details.
