    Comedy

    Altercation Comedy Festival

    The irrepressible JT Habersaat and his crew take over Kick Butt Coffee with this four-night fest of outrageous comedy, spiked by the likes of Eddie Pepitone, Jenny Zigrino, Joe Derosa, and more than 50 other national comics. Some have called Habersaat a madman. They're right. Some have said, "You don't want to miss this riotous event that'll be tearing Airport Boulevard a new comedy pothole every single night it's going on." They're right, too. Get your tickets while you can, citizen, and god bless.
    Wed.-Sat., Sept. 25-28, 6pm-12mid. $45 for an all-fest pass.

    Comedy

    Mac Blake

    One of the funniest humans walking this city's streets, one of the founders of Stag Comedy, one-half of the comedy country duo Knuck Deep, one of the most hilarious new dads changing a diaper – need we go on? It's a new (college) year, and this man Blake will be the one to show longtime townies and fresh-from-Muleshoe transplants alike just how powerful a scene Austin has, stand-upwise.
    Wed., Sept. 25, 8pm. $10-15.
