Sponsorships

Austin Sketch Fest is an annual comedy jubilee celebrating satire, sketch comedy, standup, art, and counterculture that features the best comedians from Austin and the wilderness beyond. 5 Days, 25 Shows, and over 100 performers will participate.

Now in its 10th year, the 2019 ASF will take place leading up to memorial day, May 22-26 at ColdTowne Theater, Fallout Theater, and North Door.

Headlining: Ego Nwodim (SNL), Amber Ruffin (Late Night w Seth Meyers), UCB Characters Welcome (NYC), Asian AF (NY and LA) plus over 30 acts from Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, Seattle, and more! Past headliners include Paul F. Thomkins, The Latino Comedy Project, James Adomian, Reductress LIVE, SuperEgo, Joe Wengert, Ithamar Enriquez, Brent Weinbach, Girls with Brown Hair, and Improvised Seinfeld.

ASF is produced by ColdTowne Theater, Austin’s leading venue for alternative comedy. In addition to producing accessible comedy shows 7 nights / week, ColdTowne’s Conservatory is the premiere source for sketch writing and improv training in Texas.

All funds we receive in exchange in sponsorships will go directly into making the festival better: Hospitality towards out of town guests, equipment rental to improve the audience experience, and promotional materials to get the word out will be the priorities. At the very least, we’ll make some people laugh, and that alone can make the world a better place.

  • Estimated attendance 1500 - 2000

  • Show prices are accessible ranging from FREE to $30 / ticket

  • We will advertise on KUTX and in the Austin Chronicle as well as various social media outlets
