    • Austin Sketch Fest

      "An annual showcase featuring the best scripted comedy from Austin and the wilderness beyond." And with those innocent PR-touted words, the eighth incarnation of the Austin Sketch Fest gets under way, preparing to rampage through the streets of your urban funnybone with the likes of James Adomian and Reductress and The Pretty Boys and Nipsey and … fuck, we haven't even mentioned a local group yet, have we? We're, like, pimping Los Angeles and NYC here, what? Well, listen, Austin-loversThe Neighborhood! Master Pancake! The Menenists! Mac Blake and friends! The Back Pack! And, could it be? Is it possibly … a reunion of Your Terrific Neighbors? (Answer: Hell, yes.) And so much more, for an entire week of bust-a-gut-laughing good times spilling off the stages at ColdTowne and Spider House. Get yourself an all-fest-pass, citizen, and prepare for night after night of often odd sometimes spectacular hilarity. May 22-28, $30-50
