    Out of Bounds Comedy Festival

    Look, it's not all about the improv, OK? That is to say, yes, it's hella about improv, the whole looooong weekend is lousy with improv – with amazing troupes from all over the country attending and performing – but there's also a sweet array of sketch comedy and stand-up comedy and just the naturally occurring comedy that ensues as hundreds and hundreds of professionals and fans converge on the ATX for the seven days of this annual festival of staged shenanigans. Shows? Well, yes! But workshops and classes, too – and more afterparties than you can shake a shakable thing at. Ah, we've got more coverage for you right here, citizen, but right now check that website and reserve tickets while you can.
    Through Sept. 2  
    Various locations
