Austin Stories

various stand up From 1997-98 MTV came to Austin and produced their very first sit-com. Called Austin Stories, they aired twelve episodes filmed on location in Austin, Texas. USA Today called it, “one of the season’s coolest, funniest and most genuinely offbeat treats.” The New York Times wrote, “With its meandering style, and its sense of wry comic absurdities rather than yuck-it-up one-liners”, calling the series a cross between Richard Linklater’s Slacker and Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise.” Out of Bounds is proud to present a once in a generation reunion of the cast of Austin Stories for an evening of standup by cast members and a Q&A panel hosted by Stand Up Empire’s Brently Heilbron.

Chicago/L.A. Ross and Bill’s differences connect to create the funny little sparks. Their similarities fuel the funny little sparks into the big, big, comedy fire. Ross Kimball is a Junior Olympics Gold Medalist with a successful career in television and movies (Chicago Med, Christopher Guest’s Mascots, Masterminds). Bill Stern was runner up in TennisFest 2005’s intermediate men’s singles division and has over THIRTY THOUSAND views on his YouTube channel. See? Similar. But different. Ross and Bill performed together for about 7 years in iO-Chicago’s house ensemble, Dart, and they really liked it. Ross is very big and STRONG. Impressively so. The people are impressed by Ross’s size/physicality. Ross can easily lift Bill (a fully grown NORMAL adult man) all the way into the air. Impressive! The Anime show is physical and fun. And friendly. Ross and Bill are friends. They like each other. They carry each other through the show (often literally). It’s fun. Everyone will have fun. Note: One other difference/similarity between Ross and Bill is that while they both speak English as their first language Bill has always known the correct pronunciation of the word “”anime”” and Ross had to learn it from Bill on a road trip in 2014.” Link to...
