  • Laff Spot
    A stomach-shaking staple of Houston since 1991, the Laff Spot features a range of onstage funnymen and women in the club's intimate, Las Vegas–style showroom. Coming attractions include Boston's Ken Rogerson (October 15–16), known for his blunt, aggressive insights into love and marriage; Steve Callif (October 22–23), who draws belly laughs and occasional bowel laughs with parodied song and interactive antics; and Texas ha-ha hero John Wessling (October 29–30), a semifinalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing. With all these and a host of future acts on the calendar, you'll have no shortage of chances to horrifically shatter every funny or somewhat amusing bone in your body. The Laff Spot's shows are scheduled on Fridays (8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.) and Saturdays (7 p.m., 9 p.m., and 10:45 p.m.).

  • Comedy Sportz Houston
    Unlike the premium-cable version of Curious George, ComedySportz shows eschew racy material, going so far as to place a brown paper bag over the head of any performer who crosses the boundaries of good taste. The game-based comedy format pits two refereed teams of improvisers against each other, drawing from a repertoire of more than 100 improv scenes for their battleground. Over the course of 7 to 12 games, the red- and blue-clad teams may perform in Shakespearean verse or rapidly fast-forward and reverse a scene at the referee's whim. The audience, meanwhile, is tasked with generating suggestions, choosing the winners at evening's end, and gently consoling the losing team with made-up aspirational quotes. This formula has proved successful since 1984, when the first ComedySportz flung open its curtains. Now, the franchise has expanded to major comedy hubs including Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. The latest addition to the fold, ComedySportz Boston, lassos the same spirit and off-the-cuff hilarity as its predecessors, dazzling onlookers with its teamwork, clean but uproarious humor, and ability to turn an audience suggestion into a fully fleshed out scene.

  • 8ball & MJG with Lil Keke or Banda el Recodo
    At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who?ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.

  • House of Blues Houston
    Hosting the evening's set, the historic Gramercy Theatre first opened its doors in 1937 and spent some 60 years as a movie palace and art house. Now wedged between two skyscrapers, it still retains some art-deco columns and flourishes striped into its façade. Inside, an intimate main room shares space with the eclectic Samsara Lounge where persian rugs and funky wall art imbue audiences with a rock 'n' roll spirit and inspire the spontaneous formation of nomadic tribes.

Live and silent auctions offer further opportunities for charitable largesse, and an event-wide raffle gives guests the chance to win fabulous prizes and impress dates with their raffle-fixing abilities.
