    It's … Hideoutrageous!

    There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows and classes here. This Thursday, famed house troupe Parallelogramophonograph returns to rock the stage before unleashing the latest anything-goes Free Fringe. Friday's got the distaff darlings of Physics Curse presenting another – another – goddamnit, Don't Interrupt Me!, followed by the all-star Big Bash shindig, and a Threefer, and that battle royale of TheatreDome to finish the night. And, on Saturday night, it's that Victor Hugo-your-way of Grand Misery, or maybe you wanna Put Your Lips Together and Blow, gumshoe? And don't forget the latenight improv donnybrook of Maestro! And – see website for more.

    Samantha Ruddy

    OK, since Brooklyn Magazine called her one of Brooklyn’s 50 Funniest People, and BUST says Ruddy’s a comic “you should be obsessed with,” we're just going to note that Austin's own Ky Krebs opens this trio of Velv gigs and then we're gonna stand back and, like, watch the ticket reservations pour in. Because, c'mon: Ruddy and Krebs on the same stage, even if only sequentially? Comedy gold!
    Jan. 25-26. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm. $10.
