    Doug Mellard

    Is it weapons-grade ADHD or is it "an unprecedented brand of rapid-fire, topic-jumping humor," d'you think? Doesn't matter: It's Doug Mellard. He's been intermittently commandeering your TV set via NBC and Comedy Central ever since winning FPIA in 2006, and he's at the Velv this weekend – with Norah Franklin and friends opening.

    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! Esther's rolls out The Trump Musical that's chock full of 45's worst nightmares, 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? See it happen here tonight!
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.

    Nov. 15-17. Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 7:30 & 10pm. $14-23.

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: 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!
