    Virtual Hideout: The Knuckleball Now

    OMG – insert Kermit Arm Flail – here's one of the best troupes in the history of Austin! [Note: No, srsly. In the history of Austin improv, like for about three decades or longer? We'll insist they're in the top five of all that time.] But they're not history: These guys – Craig Kotfas, Lee Eddy, Mike D'Alonzo, Ace Manning, and (live, from L.A.) Michael Joplin – are as current as it gets, and they've taken to the Zoom thing like, uh, like white on rice? Like orange on the face of a quasi-presidential baboon? And tonight, once again, citizens – it's The Knuckleball Now!
    Fri., May 1, 8pm. Free.

    Esther's Follies

    You don't have to slog your way through Dirty Sixth anymore, citizen – you can catch the arch antics and musical mayhem of the Esther's crew on video as they unleash fresh new sketches and songs and more about the hottest topics of the day. And there's all sorts of behind-the-scenes extras now, too, and it's all available via their Patreon page. You need to laugh right about now, so this is a good idea, right? And sports are important, sure they are, but wouldn't you rather be a local comedy supporter than a local athletic supporter? [*pauses for response, hears only crickets*] Right – leaving it to these professionals, then.
