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 interesting genres or themes, actors trying on new characters or performers who have never ever played together before who just wanna jump in and see what happens! But there could also be improvisers tied up in rope, 50 performers onstage, blindfolded actors, improvising dogs, or 1000 other things. Big! Little! Crazy! New! Boring! Stupid! Weird! Fun! Gross! And you get what you pay for…

THE FREE FRINGE IS FREE.  FOREVER.

Reserve your tickets in advance to guarantee yourself a spot.

THIS WEEK’S LINEUP:

Special Guest Show with David Christopher
Miami improviser David Christopher is in town visiting, so we’re putting together a special show with some buddies to show him a good time.

Not Another Teen Musical, produced by Amanda Chang
Remember being in high school, when weekends were spent hanging out in your friends’ basements and your biggest worries were your English paper and whether the boy from history class would notice you? Join Amanda and Mallory as they improvise a musical about teen life!

Arjet Universe
Jessica Arjet headlines The Free Fringe most weeks by doing a show with a different guest performer. This week it’s Ashlee Jordan Pryor!
