The Tastemakers

Sketch – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Every now and then, seasoned comedians descend from almost every improv theater in town to bring you The Tastemakers! Also known as Bryan Roberts, Kyle Traughber, Ben Masten, and Quinn Buckner, Tastemakers shows offer a nerdy concoction of sketches involving video games, obscure pop culture references, and sexual inadequacy out the butt. Wanna see Mario never get laid because the Princess isn’t actually interested? Then play any Mario game, because we didn’t bother writing a sketch about that. But mama's got some good stuff here.

The Taskemakers generally start with a reality-based sketch that takes place in a fictional universe where we all live together as roommates. We then branch out into sketches that may or may not be affected by the first sketch (for example, Ben installs an alarm system that keeps our sketches from going blue). Members of the Tastemakers have won many awards over the years for comedy (improv, acting, sketch, etc.) and have performed all over the country. In fact, Quinn went to Canada to perform. You understand? He PERFORMED. In CANADA.

Magician vs. Clown

Sketch – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Formed in 2010, Magician VS. Clown builds their show on old-time vaudeville and slapstick, mixed with darker elements – and perhaps more than a hint of danger – all working toward performing at least one magic trick.

Playing the respective magician and clown of Magician VS. Clown, Nathan Livni and Jericho Thorp conjure characters who can’t stand each other – but who also, quite possibly, can’t live without one another. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Sketch – New York

Brought back to OoB by popular demand, FUCT is a twisted, no-rules comedy troupe that challenges what audiences find taboo or offensive. Their mission statement is simple: “We do what we think is funny.” Our culture has become too politically correct, so FUCT approaches dangerous subjects with a sense of humor and serious theatrical intent, while strapping themselves to a boulder and begging the audience to lash out at them as they will. . . both literally and figuratively.

They are, in many ways, a circus of comedy, suffering, and social commentary, incorporating music and dance, nudity and pain, misdirection and audience participation.

A show that always asks. . . are you ready to get FUCT?


Coldtowne Theater shows are Marathon-style, each group with 30 minutes of stage time. end to end, nonstop. Audience Members can sit in their chair as long as they like. from 6pm- 12mid with no reservations needed. First come first serve.
