    Industry Night: Actors Against Children's Entertainment

    It's Austin's premier variety and sketch show – kind of like Vaudeville in the *fnord* Trump era, featuring all sorts of performers hosted by Cami Alys and Zach Muhn – in which (for this iteration, at least) local comedy veterans destroy children and the stupid things they watch. OMG – look out, Elmo! OMG – Fluttershy's fallen into that pit of quicklime we accidentally left on the playground yesterday! Tsk. What a gang of heartless, horrible, funny people. Always a bonus: Todd Mein.
    Mon., Nov. 13, 7pm. $10.
