    Funniest Person in Austin

    Here it is again – the annual competition that brings all the ATX funny to one stage, at least sequentially, in order to determine who's gonna wear the cape and crown. Oh! Who's gonna be the winnah? Who's gonna be the champeen? First, there's about a month of prelims, where the chaff is separated from the wheat. Then, the semifinals, where the wheat is culled until only the best parts remain. And then, the finals, the ultimate night, where the grains with brains are nothing like corny and they represent, pretty much, the pinnacle of contemporary humor in this town. Make your reservations for that last night now, while you still can – but check out some of the early action, too: You'll be surprised how funny a bunch of eventual losers can be.
    Sundays-Tuesdays, through May 13, 8pm. $6 and up.

    Butridge Gallery: Mayuko Ono Gray and Katy Schmader

    Gray’s graphite drawings combine traditional Japanese calligraphy with Western drawing practices and aesthetic; Schmader’s abstract collages explore the connection between tactile traces of a physical environment and the historic system of landscape semiotics.
    Through May 3

    William Bell

    Southern soul giant William Bell hits Antone’s for the first time since joining Isaac Hayes and other Stax labelmates for a 2007 revue. The 79-year-old penned “Born Under a Bad Sign” for Albert King and his own hits (“Private Number,” “You Don’t Miss Your Water”) abound, none more perfect than 1968’s string-laden lament, “I Forgot to Be Your Lover.”
