    Comedy

    Austin Sketch Fest

    Austin Sketch Fest showcases the best scripted comedy from Austin and the wily wilderness beyond. This three-day paroxysm of performative power is produced, booked, and organized by the wacky yet stalwart worthies of ColdTowne Theater. Previous festivals have featured Superego, Reductress Live, Paul F. Tompkins, Master Pancake Theater, Latino Comedy Project, Girls With Brown Hair, My Mans, Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting, Vanessa Gonzalez, Tiny Muscles, Bellevue, Maggie Maye, Mary Jo Pehl, and many more groups from NYC, Chicago, L.A., Seattle, Portland, Dallas, and (of course) Austin. This year's iteration will be a doozie, for sure, making up for previously lost (read: pandemic) time with a slate of live shows to shatter your funny bone to smithereenies.
    Sept. 29-Oct 2. $69 all-fest pass.
