    Comedy Brunch

    Yes, comedy brunch. Which means tacos and pastries and mimosas while you laugh. And, yes, it's in one of the regular clubs that we always list. But, c'mon, this is brunch. And there's sketch comedy by Hot Pot Comedy and improvisations by Linzy Beltran, Pete Parsons, Carlos LaRotta, Mason Pitluk, Laura de la Fuente, and more. So it's … kind of special, dig? And – hey, pass that coffee this way, wouldja? Maybe I can just sort of accidentally spill it on my laptop and wipe out all these listings I've been working on, unsaved, for the last few hours ...
    Sat., Oct. 20, 11am. $20.

    Andrew Murphy

    This Murphy's been a crowd favorite in the scene since he moved here from New York in 2011, and the idolatry's only growing now that he's started up the Bob Ross-channeling The Joke of Painting thing. Your little trees will be very happy to see him, we reckon, even without the brushes. And, bonus: Lea'h Sampson and friends open.
    Oct. 19-20. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm. $10.

    Esther's: Ballots & Brewskis

    Ah, the fun seldom pauses, with musical comedy skits, magic, and a political satirical revue with the bustling backdrop of Sixth Street on view through the stagefront window! And it's spooky, all right, as Esther's rolls out The Trump Musical that's chock full of 45's worst nightmares, and the sweatin'-to-the-free-market aerobics of the Paul Ryan Workout, the classic Dysfunctional Family Holiday sketch, and much more. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson is going to … walk right through a mirror? A haunted mirror from the Driskill Hotel? See it happen here tonight!
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.

    Top Comedy Spot on Airport

    Yes, there's Sugar Water Purple on Wednesday nights. And this Thursday features Friends for Now, a veritable supergroup of improv talent, followed by the sketchwork of Pendulum Presents. Friday brings Movie Riot and the laugh-inducing ladies of Loverboy and that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar. Then there's Saturday, with Documentary Later's The Doc Web, and the Prima Doñas' cunning coup called LatiNacional, in which the White House "gets a brown makeover" – followed by a gathering of that mysterio-hilarious Midnight Society. And Sunday's got a Stool Pigeon spieling up the laughs for you, and – see website for more.

    Underground Comedy

    Right, FKA The New Movement, this vibrant basement venue, now called Fallout Theatre, is back under new management and dedicated to "bringing the best in alternative comedy with shows seven nights a week." For instance: Rob Gagnon's unpredictable Sandbox on Tuesdays, the all-female comedy showcase called Garage on Wednesdays, the inarguable power of Sure Thing, hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady, every Friday night, and Arielle Norman's Off-Script Comedy (where hecklers are rewarded) on the third Saturday of each month, and – see website for more!
