    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.

    Stone Cold Comedy

    Check out what's happening in this right-next-to-that-funky-video-store hotbed of comedy. This Thursday features the very last show by The Frank Mills! Aaaaaaaah! Carpe diem, citizen! And there's the laughalicious ladies of Loverboy going all Kiss and Tell on Fridays; that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar on the same night; and don't miss Elvis' Rockin' Nativity on Saturday, wherein a lost, celebrity-studded holiday TV special from the King of Rock 'n' Roll is performed live; and then, Martini Ranch's Queer & Now sketches and Midnight Society! Oh, and Sunday's Stool Pigeon! See website for more.
