Local sketch comedy troupe Comedia A Go-Go returns to the Laugh Out Loud stage with their fifth annual “(Anti)-Fiesta” event, which takes loving potshots at the city’s 11-day party – from its pooch parades to its puffy tacos. The comedy show features CAGG founders Regan Avalos, Larry Garza, Jess Castro and Joel Settles along with collaborator Susie Hamilton. Avalos said CAGG’s “love-hate relationship” with Fiesta fuels the festivities.

“We’ve lived in this town all our lives and have grown up with Fiesta all around us,” he said. “We’ve experienced the good and the bad. This is our way of expressing our feelings about all of it.”

This year, CAGG will mock things like the Fiesta medal craze, carnival games, Uber drivers, mariachis and downtown parade seating. They’ll also throw in some political satire and tease local public figures like personal injury attorney (and TV commercial superstar) Jeff “4444444” Davis. Along with NIPSA, CAGG will host two stand-up showcases at Laugh Out Loud on April 18 and April 22. The latter benefits the May’s Cancer Center.

$17, 8pm Thu April 19, 8pm & 10:15pm Fri April 20-Sat April 21, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, lolsanantonio.com.
