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.

Tonight’s plan:

Crime of the Hour takes hours of research into a famous crime, presents, the information to the audience, and the improvisors use those facts to create original scenes.
We’ve been featured in multiple Fringe Fest and our home is the PIT underground.
