The Free Fringe

Buy Tickets

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the Austin improv scene is bursting with creativity.

There are hundreds of performers, and every single one of them is prone to saying things like “Wouldn’t it be crazy if…?” or “I just had the most insane idea.”

This is where those dreams go, not to die, but to live gloriously on the stage for one night only.

Every week will be dramatically different.

There could be shows with improvisers tied up in rope, 50 performers onstage, blindfolded actors, improvising dogs, or 1000 other things.

THE FREE FRINGE IS FREE.  FOREVER.

Reserve your tickets in advance to guarantee yourself a spot.

UPCOMING INSANITY:

Lynch Mob, produce by Ceej Allen

David Lynch (Ceej Allen) invites you to join him as three improvisers (Jericho Thorp, Mason Pitluk and Jeremy Moran) rally with him in deconstructing the dark and wild heart of improv. Yes, there will be cherry pie!

Ich Bin Ein Improviser, produced by Ryan Hill

The pitch from Ryan:

“I, Ryan Hill, am traveling to Germany for work the first week in February. I would like to learn some useful German before I go. I will ask my improv friends who speak German to teach me. Yeah, this should go well.

I will have each of them give me a quick mini-German lesson on stage and then the whole cast will improvise a scene in Germany where I will have to use my newfound knowledge.”

Headlining: Arjet Universe, produced by Jessica Arjet, with special guest Michael Jastroch 

The Arjet Universe features Jessica Arjet and a guest or guests performing and playing in a world without bounds. This show is always new and fresh based on the guest of the week with intense relationships, thoughtful dialogue, and unique stories.  Enjoy this playful romp through the far reaches of the unknown – the Arjet Universe!
