    Comedy

    February Love & Laffs!

    Musical comedy skits, magic, and a political satirical revue with the bustling backdrop of Sixth Street on view through the stagefront window – as seen in the current SouthPop celebration of their four decades of laughs. And now, what does the current POTUS learn when Ivana, Melania, and Marla get together for the Trump Wives Club? (Does he learn anything, ever?) Plus, Dating Do’s and Oh, No he Didn’t! takes a look at how to meet and match your mate in today's online world, from speed dating, Tinder, OKCupid, and alla that; and dig the Valentine's action between BFF celebs Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson is going to walk right through a mirror. No? You don't think so? Then you tell me how it's done, bubba.
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.

Friday brings Movie Riot and the laugh-inducing ladies of Loverboy and that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar on the same night. And, for your continuing Valentine's Week laughs, there's that Missed Connections show – about lovesick Austinites seeking a second chance at romance online – right after Deja Noir on Saturday, with a potent chaser of Midnight Society! Sunday's got that Stool Pigeon, of course, and – see website for more.
