Put a small cross by this one: might be church. Stand-up comic Kristen Becker (founder of the Dykes of Hazard comedy tour, which should give you some indication of her style and subject matter) and evangelical Christian Pastor Jay Bakker (pictured) are touring together as a double bill. Bakker is the son of the infamous televangelists/tabloid fodder Jim and Tammy Faye, but like Tammy Faye later in life, Jay is an advocate for LGBT rights and acceptance in Christianity so this won’t be a debate or a pray-the-gay-away bait-and-switch. Whether it will wax more toward a “raucous and rowdy” comedy show or an admirably big-tent revival will cost you $10 to determine. None of the proceeds are earmarked for Jesus-themed waterparks, at least. $10, 10pm Fri, The Blind Tiger Comedy Club (inside Magic Time Machine), 902 NE Loop 410, (210) 828-1470, blindtigercomedy.com. — Jeremy Martin
