    The Year In Review

    OK, check what the press release tells us: "More than 50 of the brightest minds from Austin's comedy scene will recap the year that was, going month by month and covering 2017's major events with Weekend Update-style jokes." And that's no bullshit, because the night's lineup of comedians is downright stellar, a stage-dazzling constellation of stand-ups, and this show's hosted by Lisa Friedrich and Rob Gagnon and Mac Blake. You wanna laugh your ass off remembering this year's smorgasbord of insanity, before 2018 rushes in with a Tomahawk missile of fresh hell right between your eyes? This'll do it, citizen. Recommended.
    Thu., Dec. 28, 8pm. $12 ($10, in advance).
