Showtimes will highlight select comedy shows coming to the Austin area. These showtimes are for the week of 10/22-10/28.
First things first, if you’ve never seen Jake Flores, you have exactly one more chance to see him headline before he moves away. Flores leads the lineup at tonight’s PUNCH! showcase which also features Derek Phelps, Amber Preston, and more. Jake is one of the funniest people I know and a true original. Tickets to PUNCH! are on sale now. Get them while you can.
Speaking of originals, Sandra Bernhard is at ZACH Theater tonight. The KING OF COMEDY star’s act is full of free-form riffing, campy but soulful singing, and original set pieces.
Also tonight, UK comic Dylan Moran will be at the Stateside at the Paramount. The star of cult TV comedy “Black Books” and SHAUN OF THE DEAD is known for his deadpan wit is emerging as one of the biggest names in British comedy.
Margaret Cho is at the Paramount Theatre with her brand new show Mother which has been described as “a complicated and completely original take on sex, queer politics, drugs, guns, identity and madness.”
Also on Wednesday, Twitter phenom @DadBoner will be at the North Door with Matt Braunger. The evening will feature standup and readings from Power Moves: Livin’ The American Dream, USA Style penned by @DadBoner twitter creator Mike Burns.
And last but not least, former Funniest Person in Austin winner and all around goofball Eric Krug will be at The Velveeta Room Saturday night. He’s bringing along another FPIA winer, Brian Gutmann, as well as some special guests. Krug and Gutmann have entertained audiences at comedy fests around the country and both appeared on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. (More info).
