Boy Band

Improv – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

A “Behind the Music” documentary style show, this completely improvised show chronicles the rise to fame and tribulations of M*Pulse, a fictionalized boy band from the early 2000's.

The cast features five boy band archetypes - the bad boy, the cute one, the talent, the older one and the weird one. Each show concludes with a live, choreographed performance of a pop song with lyrics improvised by the cast. Original pop tracks were scored by local musicians Ammon Taylor (ZACH, Salvage Vanguard, Paramount Theaters), and Andrew Basile (of the band Hill and Range).

Boy Band had a completely sold out run on the ColdTowne Theater main stage in February of 2014. The show was invited back for a "Greatest Hits" show in April. A member of the B. Iden Payne awards committee saw the show and wants to nominate us, but we need one more show to qualify!!!!

The Knuckleball Now

Improv – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Established in 2004, The Knuckleball Now is one of Austin’s oldest and fastest wits around. Their energy is enough to run an entire city’s grid for a decent amount of time. Their “Peak and Pop” style consists of fast pace scenes, with sharp as knives edits, flashbacks, flash forwards, call backs and “what if” scenarios. The fun, the bond and the chemistry are real and very evident. Nothing like the NOW, the Knuckleball Now!


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.

So if you want to be sure to see a show you may be well advised to show up a couple shows before the one you really want to see.
