AUSTIN, TX (MARCH 27, 2012) – The Paramount Theatre is announcing today new single show tickets for the first annual Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival April 25-28, 2012 in Austin, TX will go on sale Thursday, March 29th at 10 a.m. CST.
The Festival is also proud to announce the addition of Wanda Sykes who has been called “one of the funniest stand up comics” by her peers and ranks among Entertainment Weekly’s 25 Funniest People in America. Nick Offerman has risen to fame as the mustachioed, government-hating bureaucrat on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. The skilled improviser and fine wood worker (no kidding) can currently be seen in the films Casa de mi Padre and 21 Jump Street. Multi-talent JB Smoove jumped out of TV sets as the character Leon on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and entertains audiences all over the world with his unique brand of comedic funk. Laraine Newman is an accomplished improvisational actor, mime, and original SNL Not-Ready-For-Primetime-Player who will be appearing at Moontower as part of the Theme Park cast.

✪ A note to current and prospective badge holders. Single tickets will be available for each performance. The VIP badge grants you access to all performances, with no need to purchase an additional ticket. The “You Betcha I’m Somebody Pass” gives you access to each performance, except those at the Paramount. For Paramount shows, “You Betcha” badge holders will have pre-sale access allowing them to get a jump on the crowd for the big shows. The “You Betcha” badge, while giving you the most bang for your buck as a great overall value badge, gets you access to the shows after VIP badge and single ticket holders and does not guarantee admission. However, the Festival will hold a limited number of seats set aside for these badges at each show for those first in line, so early arrival is suggested. It is suggested that “You Betcha” badge holders also take advantage of the special benefit of exclusive pre-sale access to purchase single tickets to “must see” performances and ensure your entry.
To purchase tickets for individual performances as well as festival badge ($129) and VIP badges ($799), go to www.moontowercomedyfestival.com. You can also get them at the Paramount Theatre box office or by calling 512-474-1221. The box office is open Monday – Saturday 12pm – 5:30pm and is closed on Sundays.
