    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.

Watch as the new Dems diversify the hill and take on Trump in Bohemian Crapsody, and more.

    Top Comedy Spot on Airport

    Yes, there's Sugar Water Purple on Wednesday nights. And this Thursday features Friends For Now, a daring supergroup of improv, and then the sketch shenanigans of Pendulum. 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 the Dave Buckman-directed Roast of St. Nick and the love-stinks larking of Missed Connections ATX, 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: Monday starts things off with that sprightly revue of optimism called Fuck This Week, there's 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 Isaac Norman's Off-Script Comedy (where hecklers are rewarded) on the third Saturday of each month. And, nota bene, next weekend's their first anniversary all-star celebration benefitting SAFE.
