Local Comics Celebrate 4/20 with 'Chronic Laughter' Comedy Showcase


  • Chronic Laughter creator Joshua Cabaza

Since we’re in Texas, a state where a mere two ounces of weed could get you 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine (yes, even if you’re an 85 year old with arthritis), it probably wouldn’t be wise to roll a joint at the fourth edition of Chronic Laughter, an annual 4/20 (an unofficial counterculture holiday) comedy show celebrating the regional stand-up scene. This year’s show is at the Blind Tiger, the comedy club inside the Magic Time Machine, and includes comedians from San Antonio and Austin like Tai Nguyen, George Anthony and Blaire Thompson of the MGB Podcast, Aaron Cheatham and Jacob James Garcia of the Black and Tan Podcast, and a few Blind Tiger favorites. “It’s true, people can smoke at home and watch Louis CK or Chappelle on Netflix,” said Joshua Cabaza (pictured), Chronic Laughter creator and local stand-up comedian, who is also performing at the 4/20 show. “But we can make you laugh almost half as hard in a dark basement of a kids’ restaurant where you can’t smoke, so that’s cool, too!” Hurry, someone invite Greg Abbott. $10, 9pm Thu, Apr. 20, Blind Tiger Comedy Club (inside Magic Time Machine), 902 NE Loop 410, (210) 828-1470,
