It’s Date Night!

Join three of Austin’s powerhouse improv companies for an evening of unrivaled rivalry and entertainment the third Fridays every month at 7:30pm. The Knuckleball Now, The Escorts, and Physics Curse. Each of these groups brings something unique to the show, from absurdist humor to clever and quick to socially relevant to hilariously charming. Every month The Hideout Theatre presents DATE NIGHT, an evening of improv comedy for those of distinguished taste.

About The Escorts:

The Escorts have been performing in Austin for over four years, primarily at The Hideout Theatre. The members of the Escorts are veteran performers, in addition to being Hideout teachers and mainstage show directors. Four of them have been core cast members in the Hideout’s annual improv marathon. With over 50 shows performed, they have been selected for the Out of Bounds festival every year they’ve been together and have also performed at the UCB theater in New York in the Del Close Marathon.

About The Knuckleball Now:

The Knuckleball Now is an Austin improv troupe dedicated to high speed, high risk comedy. With a starting rotation of Craig Kotfas, Michael Joplin, Ace Manning and Lee Eddy, TKN gets inspiration from the crowd’s last received text message. Performing what they call PEAK & POP which creates a series of quick scenes that build a positive energy and a collection of themes and characters… soon the audience and players will have a bond with “inside jokes”… Each show is a “You had to be there moment”…. will you be there?


About Physics Curse

Based out of Austin, Texas, Physics Curse explores the intricacies of relationships with a fast-paced sometimes absurd improv format that starts by gathering a few suggestions from the audience. Focused on positivity, meaningful character connections and high energy, Physics Curse has amazing chemistry and is not afraid to experiment.

Three award-winning ensembles ready to bring your evening to it’s highest height for an absurdly low price (seriously, we are thinking of changing the price, it is currently a steal).
