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:

Turquoise Anatomy, produced by Tosin Awofeso

Do you like medical tv shows like Scrubs, House, or Grey’s Anatomy?

A few improvisers are gonna take you the laughs and tears that only a hospital can bring.

Friends and Enemies, produced by Ryan Austin

Hideout improv duo darlings Austin/Austin and SSHH are friends…well, some of them are. Ok, half of them are. The other half are ENEMIES! So let’s throw them on stage together and restrict them to two person scenes. Surely they’ll play nice and not switch places constantly to screw each other over, right? Surely they’ll not mock the restriction by using every improv technique in the book to keep two characters in the scene but battle between saving each other or screwing each other over, right? This is going to be a disaster.

Arjet Universe, produced by Jessica Arjet- with Ryan Hill 

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!

Runtime: Approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
