    Esther's Follies

    Esther's Follies – Austin's not-so-secret weapon in the fight against ennui – the comedy gem that still dazzles this growing urban hub – returns to the weekly live and in-person stage of their club on Dirty Sixth, the whole troupe bringing back old favorites and debuting a new program of hilarity with topical, ripped-from-the-headlines sketches and musical numbers. And you do need a laugh or two, right about this time, don't you, citizen? (And how about a margarita to go with that?) We'd add that the mind-boggling illusions presented by magician Ray Anderson are a bonus in the night's clever spectacle ... but, the way that arch maestro conjures mystery and delight, "bonus" would be an insult.
    Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 8 & 10pm. $30-40.

    Fallout Comedy

    This hotbed of local performance is carrying on even more than usual, with an eclectic mix of live, mind-rocking comedy from some of Austin's best, all week long. Pro tip: The Sure Thing showcase on Friday night is, as ever, a don't-miss event. Check the website for details.

    The Hideout

    Live improvisation is back at the Hideout! Been about, what, two years now? But now the diverse lineup of sometimes hilarious, always surprising yes-and shows has returned, with Pgraph and Maestro and more for the most unexpected delights of in-person entertainment. For instance, this weekend: American Brass, which makes Succession look tame, and Hoot Night, which riffs on skiffy tropes like there's no tomorrow. See the website for details.
