    Comedy

    Andrew Dismukes

    Says here that the Chronicle described this Dismukes as "Extremely Fucking Hilarious." Well, yeah, because it's true. Then the punk (he's only 22, FFS) ditched Austin and moved to New York and now he's writing for Saturday Night Live. Because he's extremely fucking hilarious. (We were right, see? We win!) And now he's back in town for a week at Cap City. Do yourself a favor, comedy-lovers, and don't miss what this guy does with a stand-up stage.
    April 25-28. Wed.-Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 7:30 & 10pm. $12-23.

    Oh god, we loooove this woman. For any number of reasons, tbh, but mostly, especially in this context, because she's just … so … fucking … FUNNY. And like that's not enough? Listen, Andrew Murphy opens this terrific night of laughs.
    April 27-28. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm. $10.
