IMPORTANT PARKING NOTICE: There are several road closures the weekend of Oct 24th-26th due to The Austin Film Festival and Texas Book Festival. Please give yourself more time than usual to get downtown and find parking. More information can be found here

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 Best of the Fringe!

DeaneFest!, produced by Mitchell Deane

If you know Granville Mitchell Deane III, then “DeaneFest” should be all you need to know.

The wildest Free Fringe shows have come from Mitchell. His brain simply doesn’t work like the rest of ours. In the best way.

Tonight you’ll see three projects cooked up by his wiley brain, and we have no idea what they are. RUN! (to the show!) HIDE! (in the audience)

starring: Kevin Miller, Rachel Denton, Joshua Bush, Brandon Martin, Jessica Arjet

Headling:

Animal Farm, with Jessica Arjet and Sara Marie Curry
