Perhaps you’ve seen him but never knew his name? Andrew Hilbert has been touring the Austin circuit since moving from California to Texas in 2011. Whether it is emceeing events shirtless for Foxing Quarterly, doing reoccurring stints at Owen Egerton’s One Page Salon, or clearing rooms at the Whip In with the extremely detailed scab-sorting scene in Flesh House, Hilbert commands an audience’s attention and laughter in a medium where most people would rather rip their own limbs from their bodies than hear another bookworm read aloud. The release of his newest novella, Death Thing, will ensure many more to come.
