The Austin Comedy Hour

Sketch – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

The Austin Comedy Hour is not an hour, is not funny and is comprised of a bunch of people who would rather watch Frasier reruns on the Hallmark Channel than perform in front of humans who aren’t related to them. They are, however, from Austin.

Some of the members of The Austin Comedy hour are graduates of the ColdTowne conservatory (improv and sketch) in Austin, Texas. Some still perform there. One is a stand-up comedian and a veteran of too-many-to mention plays and live comedy shows. One is an actor who has appeared on stage and screen. One played Larry the Cable Guy in David Cross’ stand-up show. One once saw Joe Walsh buying a toothbrush at Walgreen’s. One is currently a student at iO West.

Ctrl Alt Delete

Improv – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Ctrl Alt Delete is an all female troupe that manipulates the all important beginning line of a scene. The girls- Chrissy, Jessica, and Naomi- perform Chicago style improv. Their format consists of each player getting an opening line of dialogue from the audience and then using that opening line for all of the scenes in the show. It's fun, it's challenging, and most of all- it's made up on the spot.

Ctrl Alt Delete was the inaugural Winner of the Coldtowne Showdown- a Cagematch style competition that involved troupes from all over the Southwest. Chrissy, Jessica, and Naomi perform in a variety of troupes and shows at Coldtowne Theater and all over Austin, regularly.

Improv – Austin, TX

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Simply D-VINE will be performing their locally famous improvised 2-man musical right before your very eyes. One short audience interview is all it takes to send this duo on a magical, face-melting adventure that will leave you questioning the meaning of existence. There will be a Q&A in the parking lot after the show.

Simply D-VINE has been performing all over Austin since 2011. Consisting of veteran improvisers Deano Jones and Jason Vines, Simply D-VINE started out as a "improv troupe without a format". That changed as soon as they joined forces with the extremely talented Ammon Taylor as musical director. Now they perform an "improvised 2-man musical without a format". Simply D-VINE are known for their high energy, committed characters and their punk rock attitude.
