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:

 

JK (debut)

JK is a high energy duo! With the audience’s assistance, they will run through 10 scenes, and then revisit any of the scenes the audience want to see again. Like changing the channels on the stage, the audience has a huge say in which funny they want to see again!

Sweet Justice, produced by Nicole Beckley

Luke and Nicole play two incredibly nice, cheery, chipper… homicide detectives. Kevin Miller is their no-nonsense boss who sends them on grisly assignments and has had it up to here with their unrelenting cheeriness.

Arjet Universe

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.
