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:

The No Design, produced by Valerie Ward

A show inspired by the music of The Free Design… people hanging out in a cabin, swapping stories and singing songs in the style of Free Design.

Debut of the Tales from the Black Vault Podcast

This Thursday at the Free Fringe, we’re premiering Tales from the Black Vault, an audiodrama podcast of stories inspired by the work of H. P. Lovecraft. And on Halloween, we’re launching a kickstarter for a full season of episodes!

Headlining:

Arjet Universe, with Jessica Arjet and Kevin Miller
