There's Waldo - 1651

(Sketch) Austin,TX

There's Waldo gives you high-energy sketch comedy with a uniquely silly and twisted point of view. Their show promises to deliver memorably pathetic yet oddly lovable characters and plenty of moments that will make you happily uncomfortable. That thing that you're pretty sure is too weird or creepy to do on stage? Yeah...they'll probably do that.

There's Waldo is a sketch comedy troupe based in Austin, Texas. They have been writing and performing together since 2010 and have appeared at comedy festivals and venues all over Austin. They enjoy ridiculous outfits, stupid voices, and barbershop quartets. According to their parents, there is something seriously wrong with them.

Thunderstood has been performed at festivals across the country including SF Sketchfest, The Chicago Sketchfest, and the NC Comedy Arts Festival. In 2012 Thunderstood was awarded the title of "Best Sketch Group" at Shadowbox live's 4th Annual Sketch Contest judged by original SNL cast Member Garrett Morris.
