Three amazing comics who all logged time in Austin are returning for three separate headlining shows starting tonight! Jake Flores kicks things off this weekend followed by David Huntsberger and Chris Fairbanks next weekend. These truly are three of my favorite comics and certainly some of the best the Austin scene has ever produced. Read on and make your plans today!
Jake Flores | Friday 11/7, 9pm Saturday 11/8, 9 & 11pm | Velveeta Room
Hometown hero Jake Flores makes his triumphant return to our fair city with two nights of shows at the Velveeta Room Friday and Saturday. Jake moved to New York about a year ago and recently recorded a stand-up special for Stand Up! Records. He has performed at Fun Fun Fun Fest and Moontower and is one of the most interesting comics around.
David Huntsberger | Saturday 11/15, 7:30pm & 9pm | New Movement
On Saturday November 15th, former Austinite David Huntsberger is filming his first ever stand-up special at the New Movement. Huntsberger is best known these days as one of the hosts of the successful Professor Blastoff podcast along with Tig Notaro and Kyle Dunnigan. David Huntsberger’s Animated Stand-Up Special, as it’s billed in his successfully funded Kickstarter, will blend animation and live performance in a multimedia production that sounds amazing. There are two shows at 7:30 and 9pm and a few tickets remain. Grab them while you can!
Chris Fairbanks | Friday 11/14, 9pm Saturday 11/15, 9 & 11pm | Velveeta Room
Also next week, check out the hilarious Chris Fairbanks at the Velveeta Room. Chris is a former Funniest Person in Austin winner who has appeared in Montreal’s Just for Laughs New Faces section, and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, as well as Season 7 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Ryan Cownie hosts this one and Matt Bearden is set to appear along with a few special guests.
