    Cap City Comedy Club: Ready for Laughs

    That's right: Cap City Comedy Club, the cornerstone of Austin's comedy scene for nearly four decades, has returned – at a new venue in the Domain. And here's Valerie Lopez with a closer look at what's in store for the scene via this reborn venue.

    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., 7pm; Fri.-Sat., 7 & 9pm. $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. And, srsly, who would ever disagree with the sentiment of Monday night's Fuck This Week show? Check the website for details.

    The Creek and the Cave

    This snazzy spot for local and national stand-up acts has shows almost every night of the week. But you knew that already, right? Let's Get Quizzical, Out in Tech, the Pendejo Time podacast, Your Mom's Favorite Comedian – ah, the onslaught of levity is nigh on relentless. See website for details.[Note: We totally meant to say "yo." Like, "See website for details, yo."][So we're good now, right? Business all sussed? Excellent.][Note: My sister was bit by a moose.]

    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: Pets, a sort of lolwhut follow-up to Cats, and Hoot Night, which riffs on skiffy tropes like there's no tomorrow. See the website for details.
