It’s that time of year again, to buckle yourselves in for Austin’s comedy Christmas. Or Hannukah, or the holiday of your choosing. And I guess technically speaking, there are several comedy bonanzas that happen throughout the months. The point is, Moontower Comedy 2018 is here, and I’m (also) here to drop some of my must-see choices during this bonanza of a festival!
I could go on and on here (and would, if someone didn’t stop me), and these are just a few of the opportunities to catch some of the best names in comedy around, all in our little berg. I’m going to do my best to scoot over and catch visiting performers like Janeane Garofalo and Tig Notaro, locals like Matt Bearden, Chris Cubas, Arielle Norman, and Christina Parrish, and just about everyone I can squeeze in time to see. You can’t catch them all, but you should absolutely give it your best shot. Check out the full Moontower Comedy schedule, and get to planning now!
Bonus Moontower Tips:
- As always, wear comfortable shoes/clothes/all-purpose-futuristic-coveralls. The venues are generally close together, but you’re going to want physics on your side as you sprint from amazing headliner to intimate showcase.
- Plan ahead! Or don’t, but I like to plan ahead. The schedule is packed, and success favors those who at least try to have a strategy in place before they head out.
- Have fun. Seriously, it’s a comedy festival, and I don’t feel like I need to say this, but I have and now you really can’t complain someone didn’t suggest it ahead of time.
