John Heffron
Mother's Day Family Show
Comedy Works South
Sunday, May 14, 3 p.m.

Family tensions? That's okay. Take Mom to Comedy Works South, where John Heffron is sure to make even stone-faced mothers crack a smile. If you're worried the material will be too risqué, never fear. It's a family-friendly affair – and not the kind your mom and dad had behind each other's back when you were a kid and blissfully oblivious to their shenanigans. This event is just an afternoon of laughs, and it's a bargain, to boot: Tickets start at $10 and can be purchased at the Comedy Works website.

Annual Serenata Madrelinda (Serenade to our Beautiful Mothers)

Sunday, May 14, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Brunch includes regional Chicano food, pastries, hot coffee and mimosas. Tickets are $50 per family or $160 for four families. For more information, call 303-296-0219.
