Tom Booker and Asaf Ronen carved this southern outpost of Austin improv out of an industrial space in the warehouse wastelands between St. Edward's University and Ben White Boulevard in 2007. It's built on a foundation of improv, this institution, but the 47-seat black box theatre and many rooms of the Southside's comedy epicenter also feature sketch and stand-up and odd puppet shows and pretty much anything that can raise a chuckle. There's also a strong mix of classes in stand-up, sketch writing, filmmaking, and auditioning, as well as improv.
This fully improvised B-movie sci-fi horror show is directed by Brittany Flurry and hosted by Heidi Rogers, who evoke the zaniest MST3K-able films and have the good sense to include David "Krellmaster" Lampe among the lively cast. Through Oct. 27. Fridays, 8pm. $10.
