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: Bridget’s Going Away Show

“Friends, buddies, and Austin lovelies! This Thursday, come party with me at The Hideout Theatre at 10 pm as I celebrate possibly some of the best years of my life with 15 awesome improvisers, 2 lovely tech ladies, one badass Tosin on piano, a final show with BeauMoMa, and a coupla PIES. It’ll be my last time performing with y’all before I move to Rhode Island on Monday (!!!). I love you all.

I mean it. All of you. You’ve changed my life in so many important and wonderful ways. And I hope you come so I can hug you and cry on you and tell you how wonderful you are.

Also, Halyn designed this poster. It is my favorite thing ever. The end.

See you Thursday!”
