    Funniest Person in Austin

    Here it is again – the annual competition that brings all the ATX funny to one stage, at least sequentially, in order to determine who's gonna wear the cape and crown. Oh! Who's gonna be the winnah? Who's gonna be the champeen? First, there's about a month of prelims, where the chaff is separated from the wheat. Then, the semifinals, where the wheat is culled until only the best parts remain. And then, the finals, the ultimate night, where the grains with brains are nothing like corny and they represent, pretty much, the pinnacle of contemporary humor in this town. Make your reservations for that last night now, while you still can – but check out some of the early action, too: You'll be surprised how funny a bunch of eventual losers can be.
    Sundays-Tuesdays, through May 13, 8pm. $6 and up.

    Butridge Gallery: Mayuko Ono Gray and Katy Schmader

    Guzu Gallery: Realms Apart

    Hark ye, good citizen! Hark, we say, as Guzu Gallery presents the first fantasy-themed art show ever held in their intimate and graphically festooned venue! Behold with eyes of wonder as bold heroes and fell creatures from Westeros to Cimmeria – perhaps, even, from Bas-Lag, Maradaine, or the Vorrh? – travel to this innocuous little sector of the multiverse to take their rightful place on the noble walls of the gallery that's right there in the heart of Austin fandom!

    Women & Their Work: Horizonland

    Rosa Nussbaum’s new exhibition is informed by her recent years in Texas. Unable to drive and finding herself as a passenger in a car, the artist reflects upon how public space in Texas is often imagined as a place for mobile private space, structuring her show as a kind of theme park – using sculpture, performance, video, and a slideshow to explore how the car becomes a lens that focuses and reshapes the world around her.
    Reception: Sat., April 27, 7-9pm
