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:

French Guys, produced by French Guys
Some French guys are in town, for real, and they’re going to do a show!

I Hate You So Much
Ryan and Ruby are friends who have built their mutual affection on merciless insults and serious razzing. Each hurtful word only bonds them more. Can the positivity hungry machine of improv survive on their constant put downs? Watch them weave a narrative while taking cheap shots at each other’s pride, dignity, and of course, improv.
