Delicious Moments: Movie Night

Of all the great shows we’ve got at the festival, Saturday’s 10PM double header of Delicious Moments and Your Terrific Neighbors is the one I’m looking forward to the most (TICKETS HERE!). As far as local sketch comedy goes, it doesn’t get better than Your Terrific Neighbors. And LA’s Delicious Moments have produced some of the most hilarious shorts this side of STELLA. Like this one, for example.

Austin Sketch Fest on KOOP tonight

The hosts of KOOP’s Writing on the Air have graciously invited us to appear on their show today to talk about Austin Sketch Fest!

Listen on 91.7FM or at KOOP.org tonight, Wednesday, May 4 at 6PM.
Your Terrific Neighbors will be performing with LA’s brilliant Delicious Moments on Saturday, May 28 at 10PM at Spiderhouse Ballroom. Tickets can be purchased right here.

BLEAK! Comedy Dares Austin


BLEAK! Comedy is coming to Austin all the way from New York City and to help pay for the trip, they’re accepting money for dares! More details can be found RIGHT HERE on their Kickstarter page. Help them out! They only have 3 more days to reach their goal.

Just don’t dare them to do an awesome show when they perform Friday night, May 27 at Spiderhouse Ballroom with ColdTowne Mainstage, tickets available right here! Because they’re already going to do that. So that would be a waste of a dare.
