This is a past event.

Kevin McDonald

Canadian comedian Kevin McDonald — part of the groundbreaking and absurdly hilarious comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall, which found cult success with an eponymous TV show that ran from 1988 to 1995 and was produced by SNL’s Lorne Michaels — will set up shop in SA for a unique event this weekend. As part of a special screening of The Kids in the Hall’s lone movie Brain Candy, McDonald will be on hand for a Q&A session at Alamo Drafthouse Park North on Friday, January 12 (7:30-10:30pm, 618 NW Loop 410). For the following two days, McDonald will host an intensive sketch-writing workshop, which will include (on Saturday) a night of stand-up, sketch comedy, and improv, featuring members of Bexar Stage, workshop participants and McDonald himself. The results of this whole thing could easily be as disastrous as genius, but that’s kind of always been McDonald’s bag anyway. For budding comedy writers and performers, and the rest of us too, this event is a can’t-miss for its potential alone.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
