Further announcements from this year’s Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival include more national and local favorites. But you better hurry, dammit, because the badges are almost all sold out!!!
And don’t forget the Austin mainstays who have helped light up our local stages for years! Maggie Maye is always surprising and delighting us both on Twitter and with her dance moves. Mario DiGiorgio has been turning it out for decades with his writing, acting and stand-up work. And the adorable Derek Phelps never fails to impress with his wit and charm.
Thanks to an overwhelming response from comedy fans and festival supporters, the Moontower ACE and VIP badges are now sold out. But plenty of the all-important FAN badges are still available for $129. The FAN is your 4-day pass to the festival and gets you access to shows at every venue, space permitting.
This year, the only venues where single tickets to shows will be sold are the Paramount Theatre and Cap City Comedy Club. For all others, you must have a badge to gain entry. Still, the individual tickets are the way to go in order to get into those very special shows. Don’t wait for those…
So far, this year’s Moontower is going to be a ridiculous orgy of comedy with a crazy good lineup of some of the best comics in the business: Jim Gaffigan, Amy Schumer, Anthony Jeselnik, Dana Carvey, Bill Hader, Janeane Garofalo, Maria Bamford, Marc Maron, Brian Posehn, Kyle Kinane, Todd Barry, Chris Hardwick… We can’t even list them all, we get too excited.
Hopefully you’re not STILL on the fence about coming to the festival this year. Because you’ll be missing out on one of the best four-day parties of the year. Don’t be a douche. Buy a badge.
