    Comedy

    Martha Kelly

    Austin's own, as they say, and cracking up audiences with the comedic art of self-deprecation taken to its observational pinnacle and dropped over the edge to mewl piteously as it falls. Good stuff, not to mention that Kelly's sets are also the perfect antidote to the most gung-ho rah-rah synergy-leveraging parts of SXSW.
    March 7-10. Wed.-Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 7:30 & 10pm. $12-23.

    Wakey, Wakey

    "Though the man telling the jokes is sitting down (he's in a wheelchair), dying is a stand-up routine in this glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play by Will Eno,” states The New York Times. From the playwright of Thom Pain (based on nothing) comes this welcome work of theatre, embodied here by Ken Webster and Rebecca Robinson for Hyde Park Theatre, and so you know that's already like five good reasons to attend. And here's our full review of the show.
    Through March 31. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $22-26 (pay what you can,Thursdays).
