Events for the week

The Best Little Homo in Texas: Dallas-based gay comic Paul J. Williams knows what it's like to be trapped between two worlds, neither of which is quite hospitable to his sensibility. Williams grew up in a staunch Southern Baptist home in South Texas, and although he absorbed the complete rigmarole of fervent Protestant faith, he also couldn't deny his own strong feelings toward other men. Being neither particularly inclined to hate himself or his family's traditions, he decided to develop a strong satiric sense, locating the absurdity inside every convention--straight or gay, religious or secular--that keeps human beings from relating to one another. The one-man show from this former member of Less Miserable is The Best Little Homo in Texas, and it features a good deal of election-year humor from a man who could never label himself a conservative, but has too much self-deprecating wit to swallow whole the moonier aspects of liberalism. Williams performs his show every Wednesday at 8 p.m. through November 20 at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre, 5400 E. Mockingbird Lane. Tickets are $10. Call 821-1860.
