With the return of Cap City Comedy Club
comes the return of Cap City's signature annual event, in which local comics (or, in some cases, the merely aspirationally funny) take the stage night after night, battling it out with standup sets, to see who will eventually be crowned this year's Funniest Person In Austin. Right now the preliminary rounds
are under way, with the champion-packed night of finals finals set to rock this town on Wed., Sept. 21.
Prelims: Sun., Aug. 21; Tue., Aug. 23; Sun., Aug. 28; Tue.-Wed., Aug. 30-31; Tue., Sept. 6. All shows, 8pm. $10-18.
